Google Issues New Warning for State-Sponsored Attacks


bits.blogs.nytimes.com

Starting Tuesday, look out for an unusual warning atop your Gmail inbox, Google home page or Chrome browser. It will not mince words: “Warning: We believe state-sponsored attackers may be attempting to compromise your account or computer.”

Google said it planned to issue the warning anytime it picks up malicious–possibly state-sponsored–activity on a user’s account or computer. How does Google know whether an attack is state-sponsored? It won’t say.

oh and its no secret that...



Researchers say they believe the Flame virus is sponsored by the same entity that commissioned Stuxnet, a virus co-sponsored by the United States and Israel, that destroyed thousands of Iranian centrifuges in 2010.


As i mentioned yesterday its going to be one hell of a cyber battleground soon. I was watching recent attacks through the net within an almost real time visualization tool and the heat id coming from china was insane and not to leave out the east coast border of the u.s. was as hot as the sun.

ha
new zealand is not even on the map,
how do we protect the innocent civilians in all this?
will the net become too dangerous to use and will more secure alternatives spring up?

does this spell the end to a safe free net?

can we as users get together and build a new internet from secure intranets using crypto tech?

why are the eleite so busy trying to destroy the net?

The end of safe and free net, well yes, as far as free net is concerned it is becoming something of the past. Although you will be going about your daily net habits and email sent and receives your daily online activity is and will continue to be monitored and stored for an undisclosed length of time. At this point i would like to add that in the not so far future a tax on internet usage is to become a normal part of llfe as the energy used to fuel these server farms do have lust for energy.

As for a private network, yes there is a private network being developed in central and northern europe to combat the upcoming laws being imposed throughout the world regarding free net and anonymous surfing. ( see china for a taste of whats to come )

if the internet dies well so be it.

We go back to good old fashioned talking to people and having real freinds and writing letters, speaking on the telephone. Not to mention outdoor activities

So you think the internet is just about talking to people?


it's about commerce!

Do you realize the majority of all commerce takes place over the internet? What about the managing of communications in airports? Internet.... Banking? Internet.

The Internet is SO much more than just a place where folks talk to eachother.

I understand what you mean, however the internet is the most powerful tool that humanity has ever had in respect to bringing people together. This is important in order to rid the world of the evil empire which is slowly enslaving us all.

That alone is the reason why the internet is being cornered and about to made a " only if we approve " style of interaction between other people.

So what should we do?

It seems like they are saying something illegal is happening to our mail. If so, we should be able to subpoena Google into telling us what has happened - so that we can seek legal defense.

If you have a deep pocket then sure go for it, but as we all know google, microsoft, fb all in accordance to how and what agenda the nsa has. So information like this can be easily branded as national security and it will never see the light of day. This is how tight the information flow is. As for if and does google have the ability to track all and any information flow throughout the net, well sure it has, group that with microsoft and you have every piece of data one requires to know who cyber farted or burped on the net.

They're in ordinance to the nsa and the government, and them saying that state-sponsored attacks are happening is them being defiant to the ordinance? It still makes them liable if anything is ever legally done about the attacks. I mean, they can't rightly claim plausible deniability if they are opening saying the attacks are happening.

Are they risking their business and "freedom" to be defiant, because they think if something is done about it legally, then no one will prosecute them because they are the one's who leaked the information about attacks?

It just doesn't add up.

That's the great part about it all, confuse everyone, don't tie loose ends and allow everyone to speculate and run circles around their own thoughts. Its a proven method and one that is used over and over every time something needs to be kept from the public or to be kept from leading to a particular outcome.

You can have a look at one of my old threads and see just how swift and how the motto of "we dont give a f*ck" fits like a glove.
