France Accuses the US of Cyberattack

Cyber Attack.jpg
It seems that all is fair in love & cyber stuff.  Or so it would seem between the US and France.  It seems that the French government is accusing the US of a Spear Phishing attack from last May that could have compromised some French government sites.
It seems that whoever perpetrated the attack went to Facebook to find Friends of targeted users.  The users were then sent emails that contained a link that looked identical to a government site that asked for their username and password.  Once entered, the fake site saved the info & it was then available to whoever perpetrated the hoax.
