Lawmaker: Cyberattacks against US getting worse

WASHINGTON (AP) The U.S. is vulnerable to cyberattacks that could shut down financial services or destroy information that companies need for daily operations, the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee said Sunday.

Rep. Mike Rogers says 95 percent of private sector networks are vulnerable and most have already been hit.

What's being stolen? Personal identities, Social Security numbers, money from banks, blueprints for next-generation jobs. At risk are private companies and public agencies. Some estimates put the value of information hacked at up to $400 billion a year. But many companies are reluctant to admit they've been attacked to keep a competitive edge and avoid reactions from shareholders.

The Michigan Republican says hackers have stepped up attacks since the fall, and he points to China and Iran.
