    Despite crying "uncle" and appealing to hackers to leave their locales alone, US Defense Department officials said that mischief-making cyber vandals continue to target Pentagon Web sites. The ongoing acts, or "events," as described in a Reuters report, include probes, scans, virus incidents and intrusions, and Pentagon officials said the hacks make it more difficult to track cyber threats possibly tied to foreign foes. The jump in reported attacks is partly attributable to improved intrusion-detection procedures and technology, along with increased awareness and reporting, but the sophistication of attacks is also increasing and the often-present "noise floor" from hackers "makes it a whole lot easier for (a serious threat) to slip in," Reuters said.
