Rustys Internet connection is giving him problems, at Jawa
and he hasn't been able to update details...
His breaking story is
smear campaign :Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
The "Friend in the Business" he mentions
is the Internet Anthropologist Think Tank.
He contacted us.
"What I am told by a friend in the business is called "cyber ambuscade" when done by corporations. Apparently it is common practice for corporations to try to plant untraceable rumors about their competitors. In other words some corporations pay professionals to slime the competitors." jawa
In layman's terms its called "Rat F***ing"
Nixon's CREEP attorneys called it "Rat F***ing". but that was done by snail mail.
"Cyber Rat F****ing" comes in many flavors.
The professional term is "Cyber ambuscade". Which are unethical but maybe not illegal.
Where a CI team ( competitive intelligence ) deploys the op, exposing them is called "counter competitive Intelligence", something we specialize in.
There are False flag ambuscade, where they make it look like it comes from someone else.
There are Ghost ambuscade Where a CI team invents a minor player that seems meaningless, but is traceable ( a seeming dead end ), he then instigate others to carry on the op.
And Black ambuscade op, where they think they are fully cloaked and just promote the action around the web.
And there are variations on all of the above.
We use different methods for each, tracking, tracing, trapping, bots and classified tech.
