The top US cyberwarrior said Thursday that Pentagon networks are probed over six million times a day and expressed concern about a rise in “remote sabotage” attacks on computer systems.

General Keith Alexander, head of the newly created US Cyber Command, also said developing a real-time picture of threats to US military networks and the rules to fight back would be among the priorities in his position.

Alexander, who also heads the National Security Agency, the super secret US surveillance agency, said Pentagon systems are “probed by unauthorized users approximately 250,000 times an hour, over six million times a day.”

In his first public remarks since assuming command of US Cyber Command two weeks ago, Alexander said the US military “depends on its networks for command and control, communications, intelligence, operations and logistics.”
