In other news, a Raytheon engineer was arrested by the FBI for taking his work laptop (which contained secret missile defense information) to China and then lying about it. It was stated that Raytheon had warned the engineer not to bring his laptop overseas, specifically China, and the engineer went against their wishes and was not truthful about it.
Finally, with the recent Coronavirus outbreak, cybersecurity experts are warning online users to be cautious of downloading any files that claim to have information on how to protect people from the virus or updates regarding the outbreak. There have been numerous computer viruses detected that are posing online as files containing information about the Coronavirus. As many people are actively searching online for any and all information they can about the virus, it goes without question that we are easy targets. Be safe when searching online, and do not download files from untrustworthy websites!
