Scanning through the news today, I read a couple more gems today in the ongoing tale of (apparently) organized state-sponsored cyber-terrorism originating in China:
- Chinese Military Suspected in Hacker Attacks on U.S. Satellites
- Deconstructing a nasty Chinese World of Warcraft phishing scheme
I really believe this behavior is going to escalate into this generation’s Cuban Missile Crisis before long. This problem has the potential to be every bit as destructive to our nation as those missiles were, and the continuation (and escalation) of these attacks is inevitable until we have national leadership with the intelligence to recognize what’s happening and the stones to confront China in exactly the same way Kennedy confronted the USSR.
When you look around the world and consider the threats we’re facing, don’t forget what we’ve seen from China already. If you think we’ve seen the end of this sort of thing, you’re nuts.
