New Era of Cyber WAR, NOT
This blog set to display 20 days of posts. Sorry Blogspot only shows 3 days, waiting for a Google fix, G
We are entering a new era of Internet warfare,NO, no new paradigms.
In 2001 I said:
"New uses and discoveries for the INTERNET will center on "PROCESS" & "ORGANIZATION".
Stuxnet and Anonymous are not new, just re-applied old paradigms, in new processes and
Stuxnet isn't new, no new paradigms just old ones carried to the extreme.
The full extension of the old paradigm.
Costing millions in programing and planning and execution.
Stuxnet is a covert way to deal with Iran, N Korea, Burma
and Syria, while burning through their treasurys fornuclear weapons. An anti-proliferation weapon.
Anonymous is the mob swarm we have seen in so may previous variations and lives.
The current swarm of anonymous are not dangerous, just
miscreant boys, in your neighborhood the ones that might
Not dangerous but a pain in the ass.
Taking down Visa and mastercard doesn't speak
to their hacking abilities so much as poor security
at those companies. They never expected or prepared
for a heavy dos attack. Note they
have now mitigated all dos attacks.
Anonymous is subject to penalty taking down their
with web page. And burning them individually is an option.
Prosecute them one by one, if they get out of hand.
Tracking them isn't that hard.
But they are also the future of the WWW. Paradigm future of WWW,
Athenian secret democracy, Individuals grouping to take action against
perceived wrongs, Counter is Info war with the Truth.
A force sadly lacking in US Repertoire.
Twitter is another example, they were hit by a
dos attack also, the users saw the site page do
a heavy filcker and in 7 min countermeasures were
deployed, end of flicker, most users never even
noticed. Twitter had a lot of experience with dos
attacks when Iran tried to take them down.
Each Anonymous group is different, compiled of different
members and different levels of expertise.
Each group can be as different as one corporation is
Jester is one person albeit a Genius, and our Paradigm Intel indicates
he has some Government connections. And has had the
same effect as the entire Anonymous mob group.
With their 44,000 down loads of DOS tools.Jester vs Anonymous
Wikileaks isn't when it comes to the US Government.
So far their releases have revealed good intentions
and some bumbling. The first release of the chopper
killings in Iraq was quickly revealed the group of
"civilians" were carrying RPGs, and the reporter never
reported he was with the insurgents. And wikileaks
much to their detriment and loss of integrity continue
to ignore the RPGs when reporting the insurgents as
civilians even today.
See photos of RPG
Wikileaks have seeded their own end in the violation
of their own paradigm. Lying about the data they release.
The wars wikileaks is reporting on have gone on for twice
the time as WWII and several magnitudes of fewer civilian deaths.
Wikileaks demise lies in the spin they run on the releases.
They can't be trusted. So far with few exceptions their
'Releases' amount to gossip, and boring.
Wikileaks attempted war on the US is apparent,
transparent and loaded with spin.
And firing blanks.
Much like Ahmed Quraishi's poor propaganda.
Something wikileaks didn't expect to deal with
is Julians personal proclivities and arrest.
Wikileaks took in over a Million dollars in donations,
last year, and I think that in time an audit will
reveal the main motive in Julians shenanigans.
And Julians profit motives and misleading his
followers may lead to more prison time for fraud.Wikileaks defrauding donors.
This wikileaks mess is also an outcome of Obama's
personality, desire not to confront, we have seen this
in action with the Republicans and the Billionaires Tax
break. There is an uneasy feeling Obama even as
a last resort will back away from direct confrontation.
US new cyber command has been made into a eunuch.
Their scope and range have been limited, reduced and
limited to a level of locking the cyber doors, but no weapon
use. Only in War, and only in kinetic wars.
None of this defending cyber space or the WWW.
Wikileaks would have happened Republican or Democrat
was in office, just poor cyber policys. And this debacle will
limit future intel sharing as an example of risks involved.
US does need a "cyber security policys Czar."
They are all forced to share except NSA, without
a security review of the other partners.
Something the State Dept should have got
with the Army system.
Breaking a spy in Google?
While not a world changing events,
all parties are dancin much harder than usual.
