The Latest Wave of Cyberattacks On the West Is Coming From the Middle East 56

Posted by Unknown Lamer
from the no-more-bits-for-oil dept.
Daniel_Stuckey (2647775) writes "A hacker group from the Middle East known as Molerats attacked a wide range of major public sector organizations over April and May, including the BBC and a smattering of European governments, researchers revealed today. The latest attacks, which sought to establish espionage operations on targets' digital infrastructure, took place between 29 April and 27 May, according to security technology vendor FireEye. The Molerats' actions have added weight to concerns around growing cyber capability stemming from the Middle East. Yet researchers are somewhat perplexed as to the motivation of the perpetrators, whose targets included both Israel and Palestine, as well as Turkey, Slovenia, Macedonia, New Zealand and Latvia. The hackers also went after government bodies in the U.S. and the UK."

    Especially when we use passwords like "00000000" for our nuclear weapons stockpile for decades..

    1) Bomb it (a few gigatons worth of nuclear munitions should do it).
    2) Wait for the glass to cool
    3) Polish the surface
    4) Park our tanks on the self-illuminating trinitite surface.
    5) Bring in companies to drill for what's left of the oil
    6) Once the oil's gone, there's no real reason for ANYONE to be there anymore.
    7) If anyone so much as MENTIONS God/Allah/etc again, point them to the large glass patch and tell them to shut the fuck up or they can go camping there for the rest of their lives.
