Is it? You are quick to blame Obama for these attacks. You should really be blaming the CEO's of these big corporations. they chose to profit more and more instead of spending some of that money on Information Security.
All of these exploits that have happened are well known. If they had patched in a timely manner, paid more money for additional security and tools it wouldn't have happened. Maybe they will wake the **** up now.
The Chinese economy is stalling. There is mumblings of unrest. They need to steal our economic secrets and apply them to their economy to stay ahead of being overthrown by the people.
Obama proposed sharing security info with our private business's. The military hasn't been hacked in a long time that wasn't a human error on our side. That if the in place rules were followed, it wouldn't have happened. Private business needs to get to that level of security, human error.
But that would entail government regulation, dictates from the black booted geeks of Obama's regime.
