Cyberspace
Capabilities

DOD is aware of this particular challenge, and is working toward resolving
it. Officials from three of the four services told us DOD and U.S. Cyber
Command are beginning to address the issue, for example, by conducting
a series of cyberspace command and control exercises. According to
military service officials, in January 2011, DOD conducted a tabletop
exercise as part of U.S. Pacific Command’s larger Terminal Fury exercise
to test some cyber-related command and control models.

DOD and U.S. Cyber Command


It's 35 pages and it reads fairly easily. Especially if this subject matter is of even the slighted interest.
Just sharing it with those who have common interests.

This has been talked about before and in the works for some time now.

I think it will be impossible for the government to ever keep up with young generation of hackers. They will always be one step ahead of big brother.

But I expect that they might start recruiting younger hackers into their fold to attempt to combat the ever evolvoing wave of computer prodigies.

This the DOD that Gary Mckinnon obtained "secret" images of aliens whilst using a 56K modem from a room in his parents house?

it must be true, they threatened him with a 25 year sentence, or else they believe his story that he was just a naive computer nerd and was just curious and actually helped the dod by exposing its weaknesses.

lucky it was him and not a foreign intelligence agency.

my guess he has the pictures, or else why such a harsh sentence.

Then you don't really understand computers, no disrespect..

No one use's a 56K modem any longer, no computer hacker hacks from his parents bedroom and finally none wouldn't manage to at least not download one image...

It wasn't images of aliens. McKinnon SAW an image of a space craft. He also found lists of personnel some of whom were none-terrestrial officers.

McKinnon says that there were lots of other hackers visiting from foreign countries - most probably many from foreign intelligence agencies. The images and lists could have been put there as disinformation to mislead spying and they were allowed in deliberately.

On the other hand the DoD could be not very professional. McKinnon says The Pentagon is much harder to hack so the security was available if they really wanted the information to be secure.

Yeah, not true.

My buddy saw my old commodore, still in the box.

It isn't used any more for right now, but I plan on incorporating it into my offline secure network.
No one who hacks today, would know how to access it unless their from my generation. Besides, as an offline computer, they would need to be here to access it, that's a no go.
