    Uncle Sam to Hackers: I Want You!

    The US Military is preparing for future conflicts that may spill into cyber warfare.

    Military needs hackers, StratCom chief says - Army Times

    In addition to defending and maintaining the military’s networks during an attack, Chilton said, the military needs to develop offensive capabilities — not only across computer networks but in the domains of space, air, land and sea.

    Chilton said StratCom has been asked to plan for how to conduct these “cross-domain” attacks as well as offensive cyber operations. Recommendation for the move was included in this year’s National Military Strategy for Cyberspace Operations.
    But there appears to be little hackers can do to defend our networks from the dreaded EMP.

    The most devastating sort of cyber attack on the U.S. would involve a decidedly kinetic weapon — a nuclear bomb, detonated high over the Earth. Such an explosion would shut down all but the most “hardened” networks and computers within range; the Pentagon has hardened its most critical structures and weapons systems, such as nuclear-capable B-52 bombers, for such an eventuality.

    Well, I guess that they have a problem (Houston )?

    The only decent (technically speaking) "hackers" these days are in the pay of cybercriminals................... OK, not much difference except you technically get to elect .gov?

    I have two old ex-military VDUs........... the 15" one weighs about 20 Kilos and the 20" one certainly needs two people to lift it

    Thank God for real ale............... EMP will not affect the traditional "beer engine" (hand pump)
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
    What profiteth a man if he gains the entire World at the expense of his immortal soul?

    I'm not employed by criminal organizations; however, I will never again work for those idiots at the DoD.
