In the case of the Times attack, the Syrian group went after the larger connection chain. Its called the Domain Name System. It connects you, when you type in “CNN.com” or any other website, to the specific computer addresses where that content can be found.Experts say the hackers went after the managers of those connections; in this case, a firm that works with a company called Melbourne IT.
