German politicians condemned NATO and Bundeswehr joint cyber attacks

The Bundeswehr, at the suggestion of the NATO command, conducts exercises to respond to cyber attacks made on civilian objects, reports InoTV Post edition of Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.

Among the tasks being worked out are “hacking websites and stealing user names and passwords, intercepting military drone control, turning off the power supply of a military airport and controlling the aircraft refueling station,” the publication said.

The representative of the "left" Andrei Junco considers military training for such interventions irresponsible.

In accordance with concerns, the newly founded center for cyber operations is being expanded to a state hacker unit,
stressed the politician.

It is reported that the Left Party of the Federal Republic of Germany sent a request to the government in which it asked how realistic they considered the scenarios proposed for NATO cyber scripts in 2017. The government replied that the scenarios “are very different and realistic to a different degree, but technically possible.”

This year, the German center for cyber operations will take part in at least NATO's 3 training.

As the newspaper notes, cyber attacks covering civilian and military facilities are "extremely problematic from a political point of view, because they follow the geopolitical priorities of the EU and NATO." At the same time, the “Russia, China and organizations that are critical of globalization” act as the enemy.

Conducting such training, "the EU and NATO claim to dominance in cyberspace," sure "left".

First of all, these exercises are directed against Russia, notes Junko.

Meanwhile, the repeatedly asserted participation of Russia in cyber attacks against the West has never been supplied with evidence and has always been based on assumptions and suspicions. Such a one-sided view of things should justify the measures that are being taken by Western military and special services,
he believes.

    This is not a defense against cyberattack exercise. This is the practice of cyber attacks on German targets, so to speak, they are studying the terrain, they are exploring vulnerabilities ...

    If the Germans misbehave, then the NSA will compete them with loud screams "hold the thief" ...

    "The sun shines over Paris, but it does not please Parisians ..." Enough to give out wishful thinking. The price for these politicians is approximately the same as for the Presidential candidate Ksenia Anatolyevna Sobchak.

    Russia's participation in cyber attacks to the West was never supplied with evidence and was always based on assumptions and suspicions.

    Assumptions and suspicions are enough for them ... and the proof ... so they don’t know such a word, even the word itself is classified ... wink

    The German comrade is absolutely right. In Germany, the largest cyber center of the West is located, which can carry out any cyber operation.

    the established cyber operations center is expanding to the state hacker unit ...
    Moreover, for some reason, the exercises practiced not defense against cyberattacks, but directly attacking other countries. I hope (I'm sure) that without publicity in the media, we are working out both methods of defense and methods of attack (if necessary).

    It is possible that after such "joint" exercises, the Bundeswehr in the future will be under US control. Such matters are individual. The same applies to civilian facilities. Politicians are rightly condemned.
