Well, I guess I spoke too soon yet again. LATimes: Cyber-attack on Defense Department computers raises concerns Oh, great. I've know intrusion into secure nets is possible, but I guess I didn't remember something else I ran across months ago about front line officers using thumb drives to carry data from machine to machine. One has to wonder how involved the Russian government was considering the number of criminal intrusions that originate from eastern Europe. Another thing that has to be looked at is the possibility that Russia was the launchpad, but not the starting point. A number of other source countries/concerns come to mind, each with their own desire to test the DoDs computer security network. (Including someone with the DoD or US government. ) Either way, it sounds like the new asymmetric warriors from Hackerstan are going to be in demand as mercenaries for the foreseeable future.
