We are fighting with an invisible enemy. We are under attack, and we have no idea of the potentiality of agents that theatrically could remain in stealth mode inside the target, avoiding security systems for several years, gathering information and preparing the final attack...

Attackers from all over the world have set their focus on critical life supporting utilities such as water and power to hold those utilities hostage for payment or to disable them to cause terror. Unfortunately, many industrial and national infrastructure networks are vulnerable...

You just can't avoid it, so I had to write it. The escalation of rhetoric has gone past media hype and has spilled over into mainstream politics, and now onto the lips of people who should really know better than to perpetuate some of this madness...

Hackers rely upon human error to allow them to penetrate many systems because systems administrators fail to secure their systems. Many of the owners of the systems were not even aware their system was hooked up to the internet. This should be cause for alarm...

A Pastebin dump alleged to be from Anonymous has forty-nine IP addresses with SCADA systems on them. Furthermore, those systems were claimed to not have any authentication on them whatsoever. I checked the IP’s and I have to say “meh” on this little dump by the skiddies...

Each attacker only has so much time and energy. It's like trying to get a crowd at a stadium to do the wave. As soon as the pitcher winds up on the mound the wave peters out. What should you do if you are the target of an Anonymous DDoS attack? Just wait, they will go away...

China is a cyber power capable of destroying most any opponent, especially when going against companies in trouble because of the difficult economy situation. These companies are the most vulnerable members of the security chain and therefore a favorite target...

The Cuckoo’s Egg”, which happened in 1986, is the first "documented” case of computer espionage that is not classified. Cliff Stoll was asked to look into an accounting error on a University system and ended up finding and tracking an asset for the KGB...

Imagine when a kinetic act causing loss of life is falsely attributed to a group, and because of the situation, human nature takes over. Assigning responsibility even when it's false is all the "evidence" we need to go to war or retaliate. Same with a hacked website...

In December 2011 the Dutch Advisory Council on International Affairs published an advisory entitled "Digitale Oorlogsvoering" (English: "Digital Warfare") intended for the Dutch government. Below is my translation of the conclusions and recommendations of the advisory...

It seems that Anonymous has potentially sparked these guys to think like them and perhaps even use their tactics instead of continuing just to shake their fingers at us as they yell. This would be an interesting paradigm change in the global Salafi movement as well as the tactics of AQ...

The SCADA were not in default state for passwords, and in general did not seem to be important systems - like government or large power company hardware. Hell, for that matter, none were even water facilities, which I should think in a desert would be kinda important, no?

There was the dropping of the SCADA passwords recently, and that is more along the lines of doing something. As I wrote recently about cyberwar, the real aegis is to damage infrastructure, supply chain failure, and in the end invade or conduct military operations...

Growing up I heard numerous times that the Soviet's needed so many missiles to protect it’s vast land mass from aggressors. Everyone knew that the large missile stockpile was more of a threat than a safety net. It seems that China may be trying to play the same card...

Cyberwar should only be leveled as a term when the actual use of warfare if involved. Cyberwar, as yet, has NOT happened. There have been Cyber Operations if you want to use the term but most of what we have been seeing in the news cycle is once again, NOT cyberwar...
