Just read about this. They don't say if they have any leads as to who yet though. Anyone have any thoughts? Perhaps anonymous had a hand?

it could be a false flag attack with an agenda behind

The Japanese company, which manufactures products as diverse as cars, nuclear power plants, space rockets and air conditioners, said that 45 servers and 38 PCs were infected with viruses at 11 facilities in Japan, including its submarine manufacturing plant in Kobe, western Japan, and a factory in central Japan that makes engine parts for missiles.


But the article also states:

No Defense-Related Information Leaked In Cyber Attack

Yeah right.

False flag perhaps?

Server security is such a joke these days. It'll be like this for another 20 years.

Server admins think they are alone in the universe and users are just ignorant peons.

As the layers of technology deepen, the need for a user to be skilled lessens daily, while at the same time breeding deep-rooted hackers waiting for this sort of playground.

Seriously... my air conditioner turned on... but did it really turn on? Or is it just a false-operation to make me -think- the room is getting colder?

While "false flag" should never be removed as a possible explanation... I fail to understand why it is the first thing that seems to come to everyone's mind around here. God Forbid # actually happen that isn't tied to some shadow-government's agenda.

That said....

A security system is only as good as its implementers. You can lock it up tighter than a gnat's ass... if the guy with the keys lets the bad guys in... then all the locks in the world aren't going to do a bit of good. The same goes with network security. Social engineering is incredibly powerful. It's not just "get the user to click something and run malicious code" - it's become a game where IT personnel are sympathetic to a hacker's cause, or get paid to create a 'back door.'

At some point - you find security to be limited by the human factor rather than the computer's capabilities.
