The Nortel breach lasted 8 years

The Nortel breach lasted 8 years

Nortel telecommunication company has uncovered a hacking operation that lasted for as long as eight years. The Wall Street Journal reported that according to an insider investigator the company accounts' credentials up to chief executive level were breeched in the course of a long-term attack.

Source of the attack has not been rounded up yet but investigators traced the attacks to systems located in China.

Due to these Nortel breaches many corporate security providing companies should be asking themselves whether they are capable of handling advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks originated from foreign probably state-sponsored organizations.

Director of threat research in Solera Networks Andrew Brandt said that such attacks could be waged for years if administrators were unable to recognize the signs of a breach. "With any breach, the potential for grave damage grows increasingly likely the longer an attacker maintains access to a supposedly secured networkЕ The persistence of these so-called "advanced persistent threats" causes more damage in the long term, than how "advanced" the Trojan is, especially when you have eight years to explore an organisation's most confidential corporate information", Brandt said.

The expert suggested that companies take better advantage of two-factor authentication and biometric tools in the case of data access.

"Wider adoption of biometrics would permit a greater number of people to use the biometrics software as a password manager, allow the software to create and manage the massive, random passwords, so all they need to remember is to bring their fingers, eyes, or face to work," the expert said.
