Angelina Jolie has become the latest celebrity victim of hacking and a cyber attack. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has revealed that someone attempted to hack its server to obtain data about Jolie and other members. CFR believes that hackers from China were responsible for the attack and installed malware on the website. It was used to gather data about members, but it could also infect anyone who visited the site.
The Council on Foreign Relations has explained that it is still investigating the cyber attack but has evidence that it only affected site visitors who were using Internet Explorer 8 or less. Angelina Jolie is a prominent member of the CFR, so there are rumors that the hacking may have involved an attempt to gather information about her. The FBI is also investigating the incident.
Angelina Jolie has joined a long list of celebrities that have been part of various cyber attacks. In a recent case, Christopher Chaney was sentenced to 10 years in prison for hacking the accounts of several celebrities. Chaney accessed information from Christina Aguilera, Mila Kunis and Scarlett Johansson. It is believed that he tried to obtain data and files from more than 50 different people. This case highlights the concerns that Mile2 has noticed among many organizations, businesses and others. Cyber security is a legitimate concern that needs to be addressed and monitored.
The number of cyber attacks continues to increase, and more celebrities are becoming victims. Cyber threats are no longer something that can be ignored, and they are expected to become a bigger issue in the future.
