Working with Feds Cyber Corps
Whats it like to work for the Feds Cyber Corps?
They are very professional, and demand results yesterday.
Enough time has passed I can discuss in General our work
They were working undercover, and did not disclose who they
To the Public they were civilians.
Our BSU's picked up one of their
guys running without full cloaking.
And i reported our discovery through
I joined the "civilians", and disclosed
whom I am, they were interested in our
capabilities, And I was put through a
very brief but though vetting, even
threatened if I didn't disclose our
full capabilities. I declined on
Opsec basis and even offered to report
for said "destruction",
I did button everything down hard.
And they declined my cyber destruction.
They asked if I would provide security.
As they suspected they had a non-friendly
operating in their group.
I said I would look into it.
My mistake, we ran a brief recon
and penetrated the objective on
a 'look-see" basis. I wanted to see
if we could accomplish the assignment
before I accepted it.
Seems they took my "look into
it " as acceptance of the assignment.
My prelim report found what they had
requested but not the security leak.
And the report was found lacking.
And I got an ASS chewing, not the
first and not the last, but I recognized
a Military ass chewing when I get one.
To try and make up for my blunder
I set a herd of Black BSU's loose.
I pulled all the IPs and used proxy
work arounds, and further reduced
the list of possible perps, and was
able to disclose their operating area.
And probable perps reduced to 3 IPs.
I then reported the IP's to my contact,
taking the security request very seriously.
It seems my Black BSU's broke their
opsec and revealed them also.
They promptly broke off all communication
and much to my chagrin left me in the
To complete my opsec all info on the
operation was deleted to NSA standards.
No trace remains on my PCs.
We have learned much from our
brief association, and no longer do
"look see's" we just get the job done.
And their com channel remains closed,
