I can hear the word "infortunate" from here... How many thousands of private and corporate websites will be wiped in the process? Fear the cyber-collateral damages! Shut all your servers down, unplug them, pile the sandbags!
Business and government leaders from the US, UK and three other countries will spend much of this week simulating and defending against a large-scale cyber attack in an exercise designed to strengthen coordinated responses to what many perceive as a growing threat. Participants of Cyber Storm II, which also include about 40 …
So after they have protected us from all the cyber crime a terrorist (or ignorant farmer, as the case will probably more likely be) with a day-hire ditch digger can go out and utterly sever one or two key positioned underground cables and take out the high speed secure communications backbone of a country, probably doing far more damage than runaway DDOS zombies.
Actually the boys playing with their shiny toys in Pakistan , have amply demonstrated what a phone company and state internet provider can do , in one weekend not all that long ago as both Google and Youtube can attest about the efficacy of how quickly a dead end link can rapidly multiply outside the country of origin like a mutating virus like bird flu and needed the old direct DNS numbers to bypass the problem !
Some people have more brains then others or either a very short gold fish like memory retention time span !
...as well as all these fine anglo-saxon based cutures carrying on with their mutal back slapping - all they are really proving is they can defend each other based upon there predeterimend, presupposed collabrations and threat assessments... wont the new reds on the net continuting to hack away as they have been doing for the last x years? - even funnier if they spoof themselves off as one of the "official" partcipants. - after all no one expected pearl harbour (yes, before it starts i know that was japanese not chines - but it illustrates different mind sets)
raid on entebbe any one?
i can see it know.... "Hust0n-r4n93r" turn out to me Private Yip of the PLA.... i bet they would have a cooler names the cybe storm or iTAC-command. the PLA will have something liek brotherhood or the ether or the counter CSII exercise being "the breath of the dragon" or "silver mist"

Wait, wasn't there a REALLLY old game by Sierra called CyberStorm 2?
*Checks CD rack*
Indeed there is! Quick! Hide! The largest companies on earth have developed giant death walkers and will begin a war over earth's remaining resources. (No, I'm not being incoherent. Look up CS II's plotline.)
