National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) Under Massive Cyber Attack

National Nuclear Security Administration Under Massive Cyber Attack (10 Million Times Per Day) 
National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) became the victim of a large numbers of cyber attacks. NNSA confirmed that its computer systems are attacked as many as 10 millions times a day. Thomas D'Agostino, department head of NNSA's security systems are constantly being probed by all sorts of hackers, from different parts of the world. He told "The nuclear labs are under constant attack, the Department of Energy is under constant attack." 
Thankfully, the agency's security systems are already pretty robust, however, "Of the security significant events, less than one hundredth of a percent can be categorized as successful attacks against the Nuclear Security Enterprise computing infrastructure," D'Agostino continued.
That means that there could be as many as a 1000 attacks, every day, that successfully penetrate these systems but that number is unlikely. "The numbers are kind of inflated on that front," Adam Segal, a cyber-security expert with the Council on Foreign Relations, says. He thinks much of that traffic is from botnets "constantly scanning the Internet looking for vulnerabilities." 
Earlier the whole world have seen such attacks when Duqu hits the Nuclear Program of Iran & gathered intelligence data and assets. Also in 2011 Japan's biggest defense contractor, Mitsubishi's network get compromised.
