U.S. explains stance on cyberattacks

U.S. press secretary Ellie Holliday in a press conference said the federal government is acting proactively to keep cyberattacks from spreading to the United States. She said the U.S. is enacting “initiatives” in cooperation with Israel, but she would not detail them.

Holliday said the Department of Homeland Security is involved in investigations of cyberattacks stemming from the hacktivist group Orange Task Force. She would not elaborate on their involvement.

Holliday said she was familiar with Germanicus, the firm which has been reported to be working with the Israeli government to combat DDos attacks on servers in that country.
