What we know about how Russia combined cyberwar and infowar in 2016

What we know about how Russia combined cyberwar and infowar in 2016 | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
A white-hat hacker explains how a Kremlin-backed campaign of hacking and propaganda helped pushed the American people farther apart.
Al Cannistra's insight:

IF you agree with the following – please share this – spread the idea!

.

IF the article is accurate – and Russia did all these things – perhaps it is time for AMERICANS (both D and R and the I’s) to call a truce and stop fighting with each other. The internal hatred can break up the nation – and what better way for our enemy to conquer us instead of bombs and bullets. Imagine it a new way to deliver a Trojan horse!

.

Second – while Russia may be the one caught – this time – it is not like the United States has not done the same thing. Covert activity is practiced by many nations – add China, Korea, Israel to name a few.

.

The point is – shore up our defenses and stay one step ahead. Cyber activities are not unlike military. Strength prevails.

.

So – America – can we once again UNITE? We are a nation of different opinions and cultures – but we used to be one of tolerance. Or do you want the Russian effort to be recorded as a success?

.

Please share

What's Next in Government Surveillance

What's Next in Government Surveillance | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Modern targeted surveillance is likely to involve actively breaking into an adversary’s computer network and installing malicious software designed to take over that network and “exfiltrate” data—that’s NSA talk for stealing it. To put it more plainly, the easiest way for someone to eavesdrop on your communications isn’t to intercept them in transit anymore; it’s to hack your computer.

And there’s a lot of government hacking going on.
Al Cannistra's insight:

where to now?

intelligence, counter-intelligence, counter-counter intelligence - who need missiles?

U.S. to China: We Hacked Your Internet Gear We Told You Not to Hack

U.S. to China: We Hacked Your Internet Gear We Told You Not to Hack | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
The headline news is that the NSA has surreptitiously "burrowed its way into nearly all the security architecture" sold the by the world's largest computer networking companies, including everyone from U.S. mainstays Cisco and Juniper to Chinese giant Huawei. But underneath this bombshell of a story from Der Spiegel -- just the latest in a long series of revelations involving widespread surveillance by the U.S. intelligence agency -- you'll find a rather healthy piece for irony.
Al Cannistra's insight:

OH MY - we would not do that

What does it mean to be a NASA astronaut in the celebrity space age of Elon Musk and Richard Branson?

What does it mean to be a NASA astronaut in the celebrity space age of Elon Musk and Richard Branson? | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it

As soon as this year, NASA expects to end its reliance on Russia and launch American pilots from U.S. soil for the first time since the final shuttle mission in 2011. But this time, the astronauts will fly on rockets unlike any NASA has ever seen — built and operated by companies trying to turn spaceflight into a sustainable business..

Al Cannistra's insight:

how many Americans realize that without hitching a ride with the Russians - we would not be in space! pretty sad America has gone limp...    another reason to clear out the trash

Those Times the NSA Hacked America's Allies

Those Times the NSA Hacked America's Allies | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Then Director of National Intelligence James Clapper had Schoeder’s successor’s personal cell phone put under surveillance. Angela Merkel’s personal cell phone. An ally . It may just have been face-saving for President Obama, but the White House leaked that Obama was surprised and disturbed that her personal phone had been targeted. This leak tells us that Clapper and the NSA were acting without the president’s knowledge. Yet no one was fired over it. It makes you think maybe the US cyberspies are an authority unto themselves and this elected democracy thing is so eighteenth century.
Al Cannistra's insight:

oh, the Clap would not do that
