アメリカのハッカーが一番怖い

INQUIRER:US hackers are the most feared
By Lawrence Latif

セキュリティ問題
McAfeeはサイバー攻撃の発信源が一番多いのはアメリカであると発表した.
一般的には中国とロシアであると思われているが,それを一蹴した形だ.

INSECURITY OUTFIT McAfee has named the US as the most likely source of cyber attacks, beating out the widely perceived favourites China and Russia.

McAfeeは600の各国のITあるいはセキュリティ管理者の対しての質問を集め,
彼らのセキュリティの脅威の点数付けと順位付けを行った.
ほとんどのレポートは被害状況だけだが,アメリカ人が最も恐れられていることも書かれている.

McAfee conducted a study that questioned 600 IT and security executives from various countries to discuss, rate and rank their biggest Internet security concerns. Most of the report just states the bleedin' obvious, except for the finding that the Americans are the most feared by the others.

最近のGoogleと中国政府との戦いについては,
実に75%の回答者が中国政府がこのサイバー攻撃に加担していたと信じている.
しかし,アメリカとロシアが60%で2位だった.
UK政府が3位で残りの50%で,サイバー攻撃に加担していたと思われている.

With the recent scuffles between Google and the Chinese government it comes as no surprise that almost 75 per cent of respondents believed that the Chinese government was involved in cyber attacks against their country. However, the figures for both the US and Russia were identical at 60 per cent. The UK government came in third from last with only 50 per cent or so believing that it was involved in naughty cyber aggression activities.

おそらく最も驚くのは,
一番恐れられているのが中国やロシアではなく,アメリカという点だろう.
(ヨーロッパより)東の多くの国は,中国やロシアよりアメリカがサイバー攻撃に「一番加担している」.
McAfeeによると回答者の36%がアメリカが彼らの国のネットワークに「一番関わっている」.
アメリカが発表したものによると,
中国が本命だと思う人は3%,ロシアはなんと24%という結果になった.
UKを挙げても仕方がないが,6%であった.

Probably the most startling discovery was that it is the US, not China or Russia, that is feared the most. The majority of countries in the West listed the US ahead of China and Russia as the country "of most concern" when it came to attacks. McAfee reports that 36 per cent of all respondants said that the US represented their "greatest concern" to networks in their country and sector. The US edged out pre-report favourite China by three percentage points and Russia by an impressive 24 percentage points. Again the UK barely failed to register, clocking up less than six per cent of responses.

一般的にこのような脆弱性の文句は悲観的な予想を挙げるもので,それは間違いない.
そして「状況は将来もっと悪くなるでしょう」と添える.
McAfeeの製品がハッカーの悪戯に対処できるかを聞いてみたいものだが.

Typically these insecurity vendor sponsored security reports cultivate an image of doom and gloom and this was no different, with quotes such as "the sitution will get worse not better in the future". This would seem to lead one to question whether McAfee's products are effective at doing their job. µ
