NATO Websites were struck by a crippling hack attack over the weekend. Some cyber defense experts anticipate that cyber attacks would increase dramatically this week, which could spark severe power outages, disrupt global money transfers and crumble the World Wibe Web, while Russia and the West engage in economic sanctions' warfare.
According to the Moscow Times, "Hackers brought down several public NATO websites, the alliance said on Sunday, in what appeared to be the latest escalation in cyberspace over growing tensions over Crimea. The Western military alliance's spokeswoman, Oana Lungescu, said on social networking site Twitter that cyber attacks, which began on Saturday evening, continued on Sunday, although most services had now been restored."
NATO's temporary Website shut down could be a harbinger of what's to come in the near future.
As reported by the Moscow Times, "NATO's main public , which carried a statement by Secretary-General Anders Fogh Rasmussen saying that Sunday's referendum on Crimea's status would violate international law and lack legitimacy, worked intermittently."
NATO admitted that its Website faced a "serious online assault."
