I think our internet is going to go down. I don't think it'll be from the outside either. I can't shake the feeling that this was all a setup from the get go. Fat boy is going to take the blame if it does happen and the people will eat it up. Now, if it does happen, why?

I do reserve the right to be wrong. I am only human.


Hmmmm, I dont see why they would target "The Internet" its not really that easy. What would they have to gain?

But nonetheless this should be a fun revelation, lets see what happens when NK get back "online" so to speak

What if someone is trying to start World War 3 between The US and North Korea? Makes a good plot line for a James Bond movie. I mean they have a scenario where a rogue Soviet General tried start World War 3 between the USSR and the US in the James Bond movie Octopussy.


I think that we are all doomed if WW3 is triggered by a Seth Rogan film... though I was still thinking about that movie when I heard of this

Good, maybe people will actually spend face to face time with their family over the holidays instead of with their smartphone.

Hmmm.



"Usually there are isolated blips, not continuous connectivity problems. I wouldn't be surprised if they are absorbing some sort of attack presently," Doug Madory, director of Internet analysis at Dyn Research, said when the Internet was down.




If it is an attack, it's highly unlikely it's the United States. More likely it's a 15-year-old in a Guy Fawkes mask," he said.


www.cnn.com...

The US government should hire that 15 year old.

Didn't I read somewhere that they only have one ISP?

Looks like a machine gun being used, when a sling-shot would have done just fine. lol.


I'm wondering if this isn't so much as a cyber attack, but more like
an EMP attack. That would definitely cause internet problems.

Just throwing that out there.

Remember, the only reason you have the Internet is because the U.S allows it.

Yeah, well they don't even need the Internet.

That's the joke.

Is it just me or is this just a really lame/super surreal PR stunt to get movie theaters filled up over the holidays? Who's to say China (in control of NK's internet access) isn't in on it as well? I'm sure Sony has enough politicians in their back pocket to make this happen.

I was prepared to accept that movie as not a bad ending to the world until they got to heaven and the backsteet boys were playing there live. It kinda turned me off a bit of wanting to go there but i am still in if we can change the music they play in heaven right now.

Since 2009 the US has given North Korea virtually nothing. Time to update your generosity meter.

This isn't the first time a large internet blackout of a country with a limited system like this has happened: www.theguardian.com...

I don't think there was any concrete proof of the NSA's inadvertent shutdown of Syria's networks, but it doesn't seem to be out of the realm of capability for any of our cyber agencies.

This has Nothing to do with a movie..

Guys remember that the hack came way before the blame was placed on North Korea..

which came before the news that this was probably an inside job..

The movie is a scapegoat to get dumb Americans into fighting a cyber war. Next guy at secretary of defense is all into cyber war and there is new legislation being worked on. Oh man isn't insanely random that on the same day "they" were going to show a stoner movie there are also hacks preventing kids from playing games on PSN and XBOX Live???

Kids....

We need anti hacker laws..
We need more government control so I can play hello kitty.

They are appealing to the lowest common denominator. And it's the exact same play they already used in Benghazi..

It would be one thing if this is all that came out, but...

Doubt Growing Over North Korean Involvement in Sony Hack




This week, Norse executive Kurt Stammberger claimed that his firm had identified a woman called "Lena" associated with the GOP who worked for Sony in Los Angeles for a decade before leaving the company last year.

"This woman was in precisely the right position and had the deep technical background she would need to locate the specific servers that were compromised," Stammberger told CBS News.

He added that "there are certainly North Korean fingerprints on this but when we run all those leads to ground they turn out to be decoys or red herrings."




Skepticoverlord


Update…

My friend who is a private IT professional who is also part of InfraGuard has confirmed that the "smart money" in cyber security is now also pointing toward an inside job in which North Korea was made to look like the instigator.





Need I link everything recent before this hack where the US is looking for ways to get involved in cyber war? Even the next secretary of defense saying that people do not believe cyber war is a problem and we could have another "Pearl Harbor or 9/11 type event" only in cyber space??

The part where they said most American's believe cyber war to be a myth, and they needed to make us aware??

Gawd.. If they could write a new script it might take me a few minutes to catch on.

Obama ordered the Pentagon to make sure it advances in technology where important, Carter said, citing Special Operations, drone operations and cyber warfare as examples.


Preventing a ‘cyber Pearl Harbor’ will require innovative thinking from the military


It’s not for nothing that Henry Kissinger has written in his new book that “cyberspace challenges all historical experience.” The preeminent realist of our era — even if he freely admits that he doesn’t know how the Internet works — fundamentally grasps the Internet as a tool of power. Cyberspace means that geopolitical rivals now have the ability “to access the cyber domain to disable and potentially destroy critical infrastructure from a position of near-complete anonymity.”




Of course, there are some who discount the threat of a cyber Pearl Harbor. They claim that it is overhyped, that it’s just a “myth” and that it’s just a way to sell more virus prevention software, or a way to shift private sector costs of defending computer networks on to the government sector. Fair enough. But, let’s face it, that’s probably the same type of thinking that made a Japanese attack 73 years ago seem so unlikely or a 9/11 attack seem unfathomable just 13 years ago. There are so many unknown unknowns that it’s easy just to assume the problem doesn’t exist.


READ the above language.. You don't have to be super smart to recognize it... ^ ^ ^

It's in the same article talking about a supposed North Korea Hack...

Shall I link the FBI talking before the congress?

Joseph M. Demarest Assistant Director, Cyber Division Federal Bureau of Investigation Statement Before the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Washington, D.C. December 10, 2014



There are, however, a number of ways that Congress might seek to aid us in our efforts. In particular, I would like to enumerate three concerns that new legislation or amendments to existing legislation could address that would strengthen our ability to combat cyber threats, as follows:

Updating the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.
Data Breach Notifications.
Information Sharing.




Come on guys....

You see it right?

We just love how the interior decorator for his nibs
magnificently designed the green trash bin into the
retro look of the President's control room.

Can we get his number? Our office needs that personal touch.
