I fear that you may be a trifle overoptimistic there.


With regards as to my previous post, a Russian viewpoint on reports of that paper: http://www.spacedaily.com/reports/Chinese_Military_Internet_the_New_Battlefield_for_War_With_Hostile_West_999.html

Re: The OPM hack

"Hacking as Offensive Counterintelligence", June 8 2015 by John R. Schindler in his "The XX Committee" -blog. In short, this seems like a big, big deal. Lots of damage. Open, democratic societies need to get seriously creative about thinking information security.

Idiocy unbound. Par for the course in the G-Zero era. Of course the only winners from such a deal would be the PRC.

I just cant understand our strategy. The Gov is completely fixated on data collection and places no value whatsoever on strengthening cyber security. What is even worse is the cover up mentality exhibited by government and corporate America. We are appalled at all the known breaches, but even worse are the breaches that go unreported, there is no telling what has REALLY been stolen out there....

Alas, most of the current lot in power wouldn't even know what you are on about.

Don't be absurd. Letting 5 million government workers fingerprints slip out the back door is not a @%&#^ honeypot. It is a complete disaster.

http://money.cnn.com/2015/10/19/technology/apple-app-store/index.html

The apps' creators used a software development kit from a Chinese advertising company called Youmi, which allowed the developers to put ads in their apps. That's kosher.

But Youmi's software gathered information about the people who downloaded the apps, including their email addresses and iPhone serial numbers -- sending all that data to Youmi's servers. That skirted Apple's strict privacy guidelines for app developers.

And the way Youmi designed the software hid that fact from the developers and Apple's iTunes App Store gatekeepers.

Another 'Bear or Dragon' scenario, it would seem.

Hopefully somewhat overhyped. Otherwise things could get ugly(er).
