Washington: The top cybersecurity diplomat in the US, Nate Fick, has revealed his personal Twitter account was hacked.

In a tweet, Fick said that “My account has been hacked. Perils of the job.” It was not clear who was responsible for the hack or if cyber-criminals posted anything derogatory from his personal account.

According to a CNN report, US President Joe Biden in June announced to nominate Fick to lead the newly-formed Bureau of Cyberspace and Digital Policy. The bureau is aiming to make digital rights issues an “intrinsic part of US foreign policy” amid nation-state threats from Russia and China.

Fick was a Marine Corps veteran and former chief executive of a cybersecurity firm. He was scheduled to travel to Seoul this week to discuss cybersecurity cooperation with the South Korean government.

Meanwhile, a report said that China has been orchestrating cyber attacks on both allies and competitors, adding that the countries affected include Russia, the US, Iran and South Korea.

According to the Indo Pacific Centre for Strategic Communications (IPCSC), a Chinese hacking group had launched a cyberattack on 12 Korean academic institutions.

Twelve South Korean websites attacked by a Chinese hacking group remained unable to be accessed even days after the incident. The Chinese attackers, identifying themselves as Xiaoqiying, hacked into the websites of 12 academic organisations and institutions Sunday, including the Korea Research Institute for Construction Policy, the Korean Archaeological Society and the Korean Academy of Basic Medicine & Health Science.

What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.


Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
