  • The New E-spionage Threat

    I'm not sure how this article got past my radar, but my father gets this rag and passed it along to me yesterday. More of a read than most tech magazines turn out! It seems the great firewall is turned off if you're a Chinese hacker employed by that government. "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain using JAP or Tor!" He's just an imposter!

    Note: One of the authors Chi-Chu Tschang is a correspondent in BusinessWeek's Beijing bureau,.. humm.

    As extreme as this may sound to some, if a person/s identity is positively confirmed as someone who is involved in foreign espionage against our government that person/s should be terminated with extreme prejudice or better yet kidnapped(we are suppose to be good at that).

    Hacking at the level they are talking about in the article requires very special skills and experience and these people do not appear/exist in a vacuum. You could go to school and take all the right courses and still not be able to do what some of these people do. Personnel with said skills are not easily replaced. These players I'm sure are well known in the intelligence community.

    Anything goes when it comes to that line of work as no one will complain if one government takes out a spy; just possibly quiet retaliation.

    Just because you can doesn't mean you should. This applies to making babies, hacking, and youtube videos.
