head of the fsb, the intelligence services was there also to try to talk about antiterror measures and how to improve things. he also said in his new year's address, he would annihilate all terrorists, which is a pretty big call ahead of these olympic games. >> absolutely. a very big dahcall. given what putin has threatened to do, how serious are the military threats in the norther÷ caucasus to the olympics in sochi? >> j >> reporter: they are very close. the last two years, they weren't targeting inside out of the north caucasus and that has changed. they have targeted the same city three times seems to prove they are able to attack outside of that region and attacking when there are lots of security officials on the ground. so i think everybody is well

and abuse but it looks like it wasn't enough because the group got in any way. >> hopefully, a warning this time. >> kind of like a red flag. >> like they were making a point and maybe not do anything with this information. >> what it sounds like. >> wasn't skype also hacked this week? that's a much larger established company. >> but none of your information may have gotten out. i think this is all for show ad done by a syrian electronic army claiming they did this and they linked to revelations last year from edward snowden that skype was part of the nsa's monitoring program. so skype, by the way, is owned by microsoft and this hacking group actually wound upxm÷iñ targeting steve balmer and publishing his information and going to skype's facebook and twitter accounts and hacking in there. skype did tweet its own response saying that you may have noticed our social media properties were
