"The hacks are troubling in that they appear to have rendered
useless supposedly sophisticated Defense Department tools and
procedures designed to prevent such breaches. The department and

originated outside the United States. Turkey is known to harbor
significant elements of the al-Qaida network. It was not clear if
"m0sted" has links to the terrorist group."
