U.S. – National Security Agency – Special thanks to you
Cyberattack hit 99 countries
The NSA’s stolen goods
Personally, I would not trust the NSA with the password to my junk email account much less my grocery list.
This week we saw one of the worst cyberattacks in history, one that utilized some goods that walked out the door of the NSA. Europe and Russia were hit the worst by the way.
What makes it worse is that the NSA and the United States just sat by in painful silence as the attack was underway. The true hero’s came from the cyber security community.
To those that created the attack, my hats off to you, kudos for pointing out the most obvious flaw of all.
The NSA designed the program that was used to cause the attack and did absolutely nothing to help those that were affected which leads me to believe that while they may be able to create Frankenstein, they have very little idea as to how to stop it once it’s on a roll which is a pretty important detail to miss.
I’d be more impressed once I see power grids, the banking system, governments shut completely down, unlimited funds in my Starbucks account, etc. Thus far however all we have is enough to create some media fluff and 99 countries who are all lined up to thank the NSA for creating the bug, yet who seemingly couldn’t fix the monster that which they created.
Way to take a back seat guys.
To those that caused the attack, do something to impress next time. I mean really impress instead of create just some fluff.
