The U.S. military could blind Syria’s air defenses — as it would need to do to establish a ‘no-fly’ zone over rebel held areas — without firing a shot, using new and highly secret cyberattack capabilities, according to USA Today.

Radar are, in some ways, like wireless transmitters and receivers, and jamming equipment can get false information or even destructive data, like malware, into the network via the radar itself, said Shlomo Narkolayev, an analyst who has worked on cyber issues for the Israeli military’s cyberwarfare unit

“It sounds like science fiction. It’s not,” Narkolayev old the paper. “It’s not hard to do this,” he said.

If this pans out it will save many a wild weasel pilots life if I am reading this right. If the malware could be downloaded via satellite then all the missile air defense systems of the world could become obsolete!! .

Just what does this Israeli analyst know about our top secret cyber capabilities? Has someone been leaking secrets? And just more evidence of Israel spying on America. This should be investigated. Now what will Israel be asking us to go to war with Syria.

You don't need evidence that Israel spies on America because it's already a well known fact. Mossad spies on the CIA and vice versa.

These gov'ts don't trust each other.

On topic,

Who knows what this military is capable of since they are clearly always leaps and bounds ahead of the civilian world but I don't think taking out Syria's air defense would be so easy.

These defence personal are so smart. They tell the possible enemy what they are going to do and how they are going to do it.

Now here comes the tricky part. Is what they are saying just a diversion and they will attack/disable using something else? Or are they telling the truth that this is what they would do. War is about deception.
