The seven biggest cybercrimes in history

7. Titan Rain

Titan Rain was the code name given by the FBI for a series of infiltrations into US Military security, including NASA and the world’s largest weapons maker. In 2004, these cyber-raids were discovered by Shawn Carpenter, a Sandia National Laboratories employee.

These hacks not only gained information to very sensitive material, but it also paved the way for espionage entities to infiltrate these systems by leaving behind many backdoors and ‘zombifying’ the machines. The FBI believed that the hacks originated from government-supported cells in China.
