    Interesting. I'll keep my eyes on this story as it unfolds.

    The article mentioned the file sharing programs, well NBC reported this evening how ID thieves are using those programs to steal tax & social security info big time.

    Unfortunately also that many people share the same computer. You can have the latest virus and adware scanner but you are still vulnerable to 0-day exploits and the weakest link, a user. In a way, the report taught people how to do this in the comfort zone.

    Oh o.... Our US Navy is in trouble. The above link to the video was removed. In the meantime, Washington responds with their followup video. That video was picked up by CNN and other big sites. It's getting bigger coverage.

    Cybersecurity chief Beckstrom resigns:

    The U.S. government's director for cybersecurity resigned on Friday, criticizing the excessive role of the National Security Agency in countering threats to the country's computer systems. Former Silicon Valley entrepreneur Rod Beckstrom said in a resignation letter published by the Wall Street Journal it was a "bad strategy" to have the National Security Agency, which is part of the Department of Defense, play a major role in cybersecurity.

    Beckstrom headed the National Cybersecurity Center, which was created last March to coordinate all government cybersecurity efforts and answers to the Department of Homeland Security.

    Saw a clip on the morning local (Fox NYC) news about this. Apparently, it wasnt just some employee, it was a senior exec. More proof that morons in leadership positions are a threat. It's not the technology that threatens us, it's the morons that abuse it.

    The only reason we found out about this was because the CEO from Tiversa was tooting his own horn for discovering it. I wonder what else has been compromised that we have not heard about.

    Told you the government is involved in hacking. If those were real plans, the government would never admit it and a reporter would never be tipped off. Did you catch the subliminal messages? the copyrighted keywords.... While bittorrents are gearing for another fight in court...the n00bie P2P programs are being exposed for what they really are . Sort of a backstage access to Google hacking.

    The Video they didn't want you know:

    Hmmmmm,


    Just how "sensitive" are the avionics of a twenty year old helicopter fleet (yes there are lots of them..........."Marine 1" is the one that the president happens to be in)

    Kind of convenient I would say given last months fuss about the replacement machines' budget being almost 100% overrun?
    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.
