NSA USA is ready for widespread use of the latest cyber weapons

In the near future, the US National Security Agency (NSA) will demonstrate the capabilities of the latest cyber weapons, reports Look with reference to the director of the department Michael Rogers.


NSA USA is ready for widespread use of the latest cyber weapons


“The power and capabilities (of such weapons) have already begun to manifest themselves online and have already begun to justify (their purpose) in quite tangible aspects. You will see how we begin to apply them (cyber development) more and more widely, ”said Admiral Rogers.

According to him, “at the moment, the US leadership as a whole has agreed on the rules for the use of cyber weapons in self-defense, but the discussion of a similar set of rules regarding attacks, for example, on hostile groups or states, continues.”

“We can say that at the moment a crucial moment has come for us,” said Rogers.

He noted that "the majority of Americans do not yet realize the true scale of cybercrime penetration into all spheres of society, not to mention the resonant sabotage of hackers against US government agencies in 2014 and 2015." But the atmosphere of "complacency will quickly change as soon as the consequences of the next hacker attacks reach a scale comparable to the use of conventional weapons systems."

This statement was made by the admiral with reference to experts who confirmed the reality of the threats of "deliberately disabling the US energy supply system or the electronic base of the financial system."

“I would recommend not to rush to conclusions about the complete absence of real reasons for concern. To this I would say, saying that before it gets better, it should get worse, ”concluded Rogers.

          - It is annoying that the arsenal and methods of using this weapon are not clear.

          China, for example, has long fenced off with its gateways, and in which case it simply disconnects from the outside world while maintaining internal operability - the corresponding infrastructure is provided.

          As for Russia, I’m not sure.
          Well, it’s clear that weapons provide for these elementary means.

            .... Believe me, specialists understand everything. Although the threat does exist. I don’t think that the Americans created something supernova. Let’s put it this way: if in the military sphere and the sphere of protecting information constituting state secrets, using your software and your developments, then the damage will be minimal ....

            Viruses, Trojans, "bookmarks" in programs, backdoors - this is all a tactical arsenal.
            But Americans are already holding the entire world Internet for Faberge, since all 13 root DNS servers are located in the United States. And this is a strategic weapon. At any time, they can disconnect any country from the network (this was before the Iraq attack). And still, they are tired of it - they are still developing some kind of cyber weapon ...
            Oh, how I would like to hear that we have our own root servers.

    Why does amer.ov have such self-confidence?
    In life, it acts:
    -the rule that each stick has two ends and can sometimes strike a stupid thing when it seems it should not;
    -the law of meanness, a sandwich usually falls butter down;
    - the rule verified by the experience of world history is to sow the wind, reap the storm, etc.
    Do not think "friends" that countries live around your America - some idiots. I hope that they will find a "pill" against your cyber threats, as if the US itself does not bite their elbows!
    It has been noticed that America.s especially especially recently, often began to fall into the traps placed by them themselves for others.

    "In its turn the Talibanand, ultimately, the Pakistani military intelligence behind them did not remain in debt and used cyber weapons on the battlefield themselves. As you know, the losses of various types of drones by the international coalition, including heavy reconnaissance drones and drones armed with guided missiles, are measured in the course of the Afghan campaign not in units, but in tens. At the same time, there is a number of convincing evidence that at least some of them were disabled as a result of the use of cyber weapons that caused the crash of the drones. "
    This is information for 2010. The USA, just woke up or simply did not believe that AGAINST THEM, can someone, something smart apply? Now, somewhat differently, the perceived loss of drones in Ukraine is perceived.
