Re: Canada and the US Government hacked by China


What I don't understand is how breaches like this are listed publicly, yet it can come from anywhere behind a proxy, bounced off all sorts of servers and they know it is tied to the Chinese? I'd be thinking more Ukraine or a similar turf before the Chinese.

Just a personal view though.

From the Free Beacon article:
quote:
...Despite the administration national security official’s assertion, one defense official said there is fairly solid intelligence linking the penetration of the WHMO network to China, and there are concerns that the attackers were able to breach the classified network. ...
While no details are given, it is stated that there were some "intelligence links" to China. What this constitutes is not defined, but for a DoD official to state it usually implies either independent intel (not purely from within the incident itself) or trace details within the incident that aren't being publicly released - or both. Typically, this signals that it's more than conjecture. Here on the 'outside', one is left to believe what they will...

In many people's opinions ALL THIS IS BEING STAGED to get them thier needed excuse to LOCK DOWN THE INTERNET -- STOP THE FREE FLOW OF INFO (Then they can do whatever they want to ppl and no one will have anyway of finding out things)

White House hit with primitive cyber-attack

quote:
Staffers under US President Barack Obama have already confirmed that the Oval Office is readying the release of a cybersecurity executive order to be forced down the digital throats of every American any day now, and the beating of war drums sounding off the start of an assault on Internet freedoms is only getting louder. Now the White House says that they have thwarted an attempt to attack a computer system serving 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, but the facts of the hack revealed so far suggest the latest news is nothing more than the same fear-mongering rhetoric used to unsuccessfully rally for a cyber-bill in Congress.

This maybe a little off topic:

The problem there, even though I initially thought it was all crap, is that locking down the Internet by govt request, data retention and other methods does not even begin to offer a band-aid solution.

We need training, better protocols etc not govt's taking it over - how does that enforce security measures; I'd think it would do the exact opposite.
