Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Said -Cyber Crime is As Threatening As al Qaeda

The number of organized cyber crime has already kisses the sky. Keeping this scenario in mind Janet Napolitano, Secretary of Homeland Security, said that "the greatest threats in actual activity we've seen aimed at the West and the United States has been in the cyber-arena", in addition to "al Qaeda and al Qaeda-related groups" The comments highlight the increasing trend of political sparring and espionage proliferating on the Web. The Flame virus, believed to be driven by a western government, continues to grab headlines, while he also claimed that Google has introduced a tool to warn users of state-sponsored attacks on their accounts. Though gmail completely denied this blame while saying that Govt hired State-Sponsored attackers who ware accessing millions of Gmail accounts illegally
Napolitano also said the government is taking steps to be "proactive instead of reactive" in combating the new threats, adding that the worldwide cost of tackling cyber-crime - an estimated $388 billion (£250 billion) - is "already outstripping [the cost of tackling] traditional narcotics". 
A White House plan code-named Olympic Games was launched to infect Iran's nuclear program at the beginning of the Obama administration, though Washington denies the Flame virus, also targeting Iran, was part of the project, after it was found to have existed for a number of years.
