Hackers attacking NYPD’s computers

It’s a cyberspace nightmare. Hackers from around the world are reportedly trying to break into the New York City Police Department’s computers. The hackers, believed to be based mainly in China, have been trying with 70,000 attempts a day to break into the New York City Police Department’s computers.

Commissioner Raymond Kelly says they haven’t made it through yet, but the fact that their activities are relentless is prompting the force to raise its guard against high-tech crime. Kelly said this threat is similar to a cyber espionage plot recently uncovered at the Pentagon. In that case, China-based hackers successfully cracked the Pentagon’s computers and were able to get details of the design features of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet program being developed by Lockheed Martin.
