Live Fire Incoming ..Take Cover or Suffer the Consequences of Cuts and Misappropriated Funding
"I wonder if they've thought of opening up live fire exercises to the public.
That way all the wannabe hackers could flex their muscles in military controlled cyberspace and proper black hat hackers could see if they could outfox the government forces.
It'd be like a national game of hack the flag!" .... bigjokerfish Posted Wednesday 26th January 2011 16:35 GMT
Err.... I think that is the present, and probably definely abiding military/government problem, bigjokerfish. Their systems of Command and Control have all already been hacked by relatively anonymous and enigmatic A.N.Others, and traditional and Establishment forces no longer possess any meaningful, leading long term, power structures to guarantee either their stated policy aims or their hidden agendas.
Whether or not A.N.Others are sharing such MkUltraSensitive secrets/algorithms/protocols/methodologies as SMARTer enable the remote virtual control of existing Command and Control and SCADA Systems is not something which is likely to be openly discussed ...... for obvious confidential and financial reasons as are always associated with Proprietary Intellectual Property and CodeXSSXXXX exchanges which can significantly alter and redistribute Global Imbalances of Mighty Power for Universal Spreads of Immaculate Control.
Do you imagine that Blighty Boffinry has a major stake in such matters, and are the Government and City institutions in on it at foundation level, clamouring to invest in order to ensure that they reap the benefits of their foresight, or do their Special Intelligence Services Providers fail them catastrophically in such as are irregular and unconventional cyber fields/novel playgrounds/Great Games?
