Data breach at Oak Ridge National Laboratory part of a series of cyberattacks – possibly out of China – on US laboratories and institutions

In what may be part of a larger series of cyberattacks on various U.S. laboratories and institutions, cybercriminals have broken into computers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), and also reportedly targeted Los Alamos National Laboratory and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.

What do you want to bet that some of the national labs' most scary(as in this is how you build some of the world's most nasty machinery) 411 was long ago swiped by foreign powers that saved themselves billions and billions in R&D costs? Seems par for the course.

Yet the fix to this is so easy.

If you don't want it hacked, don't put it on the net.
