Red Arrow U.S. official: Other nations engaging in 'reckless' cyber attacks



According to a top U.S. cybersecurity official, other nations have been employing 'reckless' cyber attacks without 'any sense of restraint.'

Debora Plunkett of the secretive National Security Agency (NSA), says that such behaviors were not seen even during the height of the Cold War:
"We're starting to see nation-state resources and expertise employed in what we would characterize as reckless and disruptive, destructive behaviors.
Some of today's national cyber actors don't seem to be bound by any sense of restraint."

The official also predicted that Congress would pass a cybersecurity legislation within the next year, following failed attempts such as CISPA and SOPA.

Officials in the Obama administration have long accused China, Russia and others of hacking or attempting to hack U.S. computer networks for espionage, corporate secret stealing or other economic gain.
On the other hand, the U.S. has been accused of helping Israel to launch cyber attacks on Iran in an effort to derail their nuclear program.

What no one else is cheating fair? Is that the claim?

The US opened this little Pandora's box with Stuxnet. It rapidly followed with several other versions of malware, all attempting to gather information or attempting to do damage to various parts of the Middle East.

What they didn't plan on was this malware getting out. Seems the engineers from the nuclear facility took USB thumb drives home with info to work at home, only to infect their computers at home that surfed the net. So the Stuxnet got released into the wild. There are even claims that sensors went blank at Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant prior to the accident. Whether that is true or not I have no idea beyond I've read claims of such.

Let me tell you what really bothers me in all this. The Stuxnet and other malware released later, all have some common tags. They show that the same teams made these malwares. You can be sure there are teams of people looking at how this was done and how it was pulled off in the coding of the malware.

Sometime in the future we are going to see this released into the wild. Not if but rather when. We are in no better shape to fight it off than those countries this malware was released in. Do not take comfort that Microsoft co-operated to allow use of some not known to the public zero day stuff that has since been closed. There has been a steady, continual release of zero day exploits ever since malware was release and it shows no signs of curtailment in securing the code to prevent them. In 1982, the first version of Windows was released. After thirty years zero days are still being found.

It's rather hypocritical of the US to whine other countries are using malware when they have demonstrated they will use it when it is to their advantage. It if is truly security they are worried about they could always make a law along the lines of requiring all OSes to be coded with security in mind but somehow I don't see that happening as it would seal off their own ability to hack into the system.
