muses of the moment

A quiz….

Filed under: Odds 'n ends — totallygroovygirlfriday @ 2:29 pm

What does this story about downed drones in Iran and reverse engineering have to do with this story about recent Chinese computer warfare on big name US companies? Hint: who received the stuxnet virus?

groovygirl finds it very interesting that the US has announced these private company hacks. Makes gg think that these attacks were either not as innocent and non-damaging as the announce makes it seem. Stuxnet requires some system knowledge to work, could be a pre-fishing expedition.

That’s the problem with drones and computer viruses, once you launch them at your enemy…..your enemy can reverse engineer them (perhaps up to a limit) and quickly gain some knowledge to use against you. gg hopes the US has a plan, like some decoys? Or maybe these recent Chinese hacks are the decoys from the other side? The intrigue…..

gg has no idea about these things, but she does know: the 21st century warfare is in full swing. The computer virus wars are underground. And the currency wars are above ground. Both cost money and both have the potential to cause major economic and systemic problems.
