For years we have warned our readers about the dangers that a full scale cyber-attack could have on our infrastructure; now those dangers are even higher as the Federal Government prepares to launch Pre-emptive cyber strikes against rogue nations.
According to the New York Times, President Barack Obama has just concluded a secret legal review of the administration’s new cyber war guidelines. The guidelines give President Obama the power to order pre-emptive cyber strikes to protect national security interests. This news comes as a number of financial institutions have recently admitted to being hacked by foreign hackers.
Last month we spoke to cyber security expert Damon Petraglia, about the dangers we face in this new era of cyber warfare. Petraglia shared how vulnerable our country is to cyber-attacks, and suggested that our entire cyber-supply chain is already under attack.
“He told us, “We have been attacked and we are under attack 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. Our military systems are probed in excess of hundreds of thousands of times per hour. Our private industry can claim similar statistics.””
Anonymous Has Declared Global Cyber War I
Looks like anonymous has declared war.
Looks like the attacks are getting bigger. Gotta wonder who’s really behind this. A loose grooup of hackers or the US Gov.
Anonymous Hacks Gov Site, posts video- Claims to have armed “cyber” nuclear warheads
That WAS the United States Sentencing Commission, and I did see that they had changed the index.html file to index2.html, at which it appeared the regular website came up…
As was reported on Monday, among the numerous files hacked and leaked in the past week by the Hacker group Anonymous was a database of some 4606 regional bankers together with copious amounts of confidential information, which according to Anonymous’ twitter account was sourced at the very Federal Reserve, which in turn would imply that the Fed itself had been hacked.
It would also imply that our rhetorical suggestion from nearly two years ago had actually been taken seriously by Anonymous. To wit, from March 2011: “perhaps in the aftermath of the IMF “very major breach” by anonymous hackers, it is really time to make sure all external access points toFedWire and FedLine are truly safe and sound. It will be very sad if it is uncovered that this source of externally accessible portal to hundreds of billions in emergency Fed funding has been somehow compromised. Just imagine the loss of confidence in the system… Why, a global distributed attack would really stretch the Fed’s 1,200-strong police force quite thin.” Moments ago the Fed confirmed that it had, indeed, been hacked by Anonymous.
The right to a Pre-emptive Nuclear Strike against China is now part of US Law!!

In a special report, Trainwreck Tommy reports on his insider’s tip to be prepared for a massive cyber attack within the next 6 months.
The implications are enormous, as the banksters potentially have an opportunity to hire contract labor to sabotage the system; collapse the banks; and steal 30-40% of the deposits overnight.
Pete says that they also have an opportunity to push the blame of the system collapsing on false flag “terrorists”, and recommends that everyone protect their money by pulling all their money out of the banks.
Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano warned on Thursday that a major cyber attack is a looming threat and could have the same sort of impact as last year’s Superstorm Sandy, which knocked out electricity in a large swathe of the Northeast.
Napolitano said a “cyber 9/11″ could happen “imminently” and that critical infrastructure – including water, electricity and gas – was very vulnerable to such a strike.
