SAN FRANCISCO– A two-year-old anti-counterfeit FBI operation, called Cisco Raider, targeted distributors of fake network hardware and has led to 15 criminal cases and 3,500 counterfeit products worth $3.5 million bought by U.S. military agencies, contractors and electric power companies.

The fake hardware was not only a waste of money, but also made it incredibly easy for hackers to get into the U.S. Military’s computer systems.  For more details on this, click here and return back to comment.
