France24: Warning of a «cyber arms race,» top Web security firm McAfee Inc. said Tuesday that China, France, Israel, Russia and the United States have developed «cyber weapons.»
«McAfee began to warn of the global cyber arms race more than two years ago, but now we’re seeing increasing evidence that it’s become real,» said Dave DeWalt, president and chief executive of McAfee.
«Several nations around the world are actively engaged in cyberwar-like preparations and attacks,» he said. «Today, the weapons are not nuclear, but virtual, and everyone must adapt to these threats.»
The Santa Clara, California-based McAfee, in its fifth annual «Virtual Criminology Report,» said China, France, Israel, Russia and the United States were countries that have developed «advanced offensive cyber capabilities.»
McAfee said cyberattacks were on the rise and «cyberwarfare is a reality.»
