Why do the military and governments use the same internet as us?
Why havent they got their own network?
Why dont they use dedicated computers that boot to a new clean operating sytem every boot? even I can manage that!!!

I just dont get it

This is an odd scenario.

If the cracking team were any good, they probably wouldn't have been found out.

This looks more to me like Iranian's have done the crack - purposefully being sloppy - in order to pin the blame on the Israelis and their allies.

Maybe I am looking too far into this.......but knowing what I do, I can't see how an elite cracking team could fudge this unless it was done intentionally.

Good question.
Every .mil type personnel and system using an OS could boot to preconfigured CDs.

They could further VNC/terminal through local proxies using secure user specific controlled access VPNs to secure, hardened, centralized information hubs.

Military is suppose to be all about security, yet, they scrimp and scrape on the infotech side in using public internet, public OS, etc?

I read the GReAT(KL) analysis yesterday which went over the specifics of this malware in tedious detail and there was no mention of any infections in Russia. IIRC there were less than 100 in total and most were in Lebanon. So how exactly has it 'hit' Russia?

UVB-76 is acting up tonight as well.

“MiniFlame’s ability to be used as a plug-in by either Flame or Gauss clearly connects the collaboration between the development teams of both Flame and Gauss. Since the connection between Flame and Stuxnet/Duqu has already been revealed, it can be concluded that all these advanced threats come from the same 'cyber warfare' factory,” Kaspersky Lab said.

Interesting stuff. It's been quite obvious for a while now that all these advanced threats are coming from the same group... a lot of the evidence also indicates that group is a professional Government hacker cell. I can't believe how advanced some of these latest threats are. It will start to get really interesting when hackers develop self-learning viruses.

You should have read the article.



A new cyber espionage program linked to the notorious Flame and Gauss malware has been detected by Russia's Kaspersky Lab. The anti-virus giant’s chief warns that global cyber warfare is in “full swing” and will probably escalate in 2013.

Well they do use both, a secure network and a non-secure network. The .mil vs the .smil.

But there are idiots who save a .mil word doc onto disc and later post it to a .smil network. If the anti-virius is not up to date...it's been hacked.

Thumb drives were the blessed curse back in the early 2000's. But idiots couldn't refrain from downloading songs (or porn) onto them which in turn infected secure networks. Then other idiots took them on patrol.

There has got to be a better way.

I hate having to repeat myself. GReAT is the Global Research and Analysis Team of Kaspersky Lab. I read their analysis of this malware yesterday. There was nothing in it to support the claim that this virus has 'hit' Russia in any respect.

It looks that way. Kaspersky has been pointing out our cyber mischief for years without us all ending up crispy and dead so perhaps the World War Three stuff is a jumping the gun just a little.

Yes - because we are the only ones who has the source, right?



Shamoon,[a] also known as Disttrack, is a modular computer virus discovered in 2012 that attacks computers running the Microsoft Windows "NT" line of operating systems (it is not known to function correctly on Windows 9x/ME). The virus is being used for cyber espionage in the energy sector.[1][2][3] Its discovery was announced on 16 August 2012 by Symantec,[2] Kaspersky Lab,[4] and Seculert.[5] Similarities have been highlighted by Kaspersky Lab and Seculert between Shamoon and the flame malware.[4][5]


Please, study the basics before making such accusations.

kaspersky is awesome realy is the best AV ive ever used, its the first AV i have ever used that i actualy could not see a difference in the web surfing speed of my computer before and after installation,

as well it has prevented many viruses that were not prevented on two other test computers i have setup which one runs norton the other mcafee

without a doubt most effective antivirus you can get, love it,

usa.kaspersky.com...

remember it was the ONLY antivirus program which was able to prevent the virus which infected irans nuclear facility, i saw that as an indicator that it is potentially NOT on tptb side

They where the first as they received a copy of the malware first by one of their clients - if I am not mistaking. Symantec made great leaps into the malware also.
