Oh and I almost forgot, if it is accessible via the "Internet" it is "out there" not "in there".
Nobody dismissed shit you stupid fucking AC, READ.... COMPREHEND...
Store everything offline, air gap, then the person calls in when they need the information and it can be transmitted to them at that time over an encrypted link with various other security protocols enabled (changing passwords often, large passwords or phrases, security cards, tokens, etc).
Storing it online makes it a target and you're begging for it.
Which shows you how vulnerable and incompetent Sony is, or who they hired for security.
What I'm saying is don't put anything you don't want to lose out there, there are ways of dealing with this safely, though admittedly inconvenient.
The fact that there is concern for SCADA (and other) systems that are critical is another gigantic "duh" from the security stand point.
I ask the same question again, why put this stuff online at all? Why are critical systems for infrastructure online? Why is anything of any importance for our government and nation available to the general Internet?
The only answers I've come up with are either cost related or they want them to be targets.
Based on who was in the movie they probably were happy to pull what they saw as yet another Seth Rogen stinker.
Hyperbole is an effective technique for programming cattle, now comes the synchronized MSM assault.
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said Thursday that the Obama Administration is viewing the Sony attack as a "serious national security matter" and is considering a range of possible options as a response
Just as I predicted: http://slashdot.org/comments.p...
record hundreds of encrypted calls and texts at a time for later decryption
And that it probably applies to any encryption offered up to consumers from Google, Apple, and Microsoft, etc.
If they haven't already added a master key to their encryption, the ability to decrypt easily through a "flaw" or "weakness" would allow deniability though.
To fold up the business, I'll say it again there's no future for Yahoo, it's amazing to me it's even around any longer.
Yes, if you're actually serious, that's another name to add to the "Crap Pack".
The sound of one hand clapping: https://www.youtube.com/watch?...
I would accept "false flag" though as a premise to generate publicity for a movie with the shit actor Seth Rogen, how do slobs like Seth and Jonah Hill keep getting work?
No what I am saying is the contemporary idea of "never waste a crisis", not that Sony orchestrated this hack, but rather they (and others) will look to "how do we turn it around or profit from it"
In terms of locking down the Internet and/or "fighting piracy" as some add on rider to yet another security bill.
To simplify, it's another arrow in the quiver of reducing Internet freedoms and will be used as an example to justify some draconian regulation.
Personally I think it was some script kiddies having fun, if you've read any of the Power Point presentations that were leaked you may have come to the same conclusion I have, that the people in this division of Sony, are lazy, racist, greedy and incompetent at "security" and the Internet in general.
Stupid idea, instead just make wallets, phone sleeves or other small item carriers with the lining.
