World Headed for "Cyber Cold War"?

Government and military computer systems in the West are coming under sustained attack from China and other countries, a major new study warns.

Internet security company McAfee's closely-read annual Virtual Criminology Report, which draws on interviews with senior staff at organizations including Britain's Serious Organized Crime Agency, NATO and the FBI, says that the world has entered a "cyber cold war" in which Web-based espionage poses the biggest threat to national security.

The story is too old to be commented.

We could be in trouble...

In order to hack into military inferstructers, they need over millions and millions of super computers to hack in. As the Sony PS3 is also a super computer (linux built in and fast processor) and if I remember correctly how Sony wanted every PS3 user to agree with letting them use thier PS3 for a research thing, that could just be it, to hack into military stuff. Not saying it is but it can be something. This type of news aint to good for all of us living in the U.S, even tho it between other countries, it could happen here.

We're not headed for a cyber cold-war; rather the West is already in another Cold War with China and Russia, now. From the shunning of the USS KittyHawk and her crew to port in Hong Kong over Thanksgiving to the Chinese Nuclear sub popping up in the middle of U.S. Navy operatios (((undetected)))) - to the hardline stance that Putin has taken against the West and it's allies in installing the missile defense system in Poland to protect Europe from Middle Eastern threats.

It's all bubbling up to the surface and I expect another World War in the near future, if not all-out regional battles, with peace, progress, and life taking a huge backseat in this one. China is in the rise at a super rapid rate worldwide. The technologies smuggled from places like Los Alamos have helped them break old U.S. codes and get over the proverbial hump in refining their technologies to be better or on equal footing w/ American military technologies. They then sell that information to the highest bidder on the black market, so the U.S. always has to stay on its toes when it comes to technology and information systems vs. rogue threats.

Sad thing is that w/ an idiot like Bush running the country - a lot of people worldwide don't like U.S. right now, but what those same people don't realize is that that won't always be the case. Someone else will take Bush's place, and America and her allies will still be there as the frontline of offense and defense to protect the free, civilized, and peaceful common folk of the world. If that doesn't happen the world will be run by

A.) China

B.) Russia

C.) Iran

Sorry for the rant, but as important as video games are to me, I nor any of you will be playing anything as freely as we want if the powers that want to change all of this, get their way.

MK_Red3335d ago

LOL, dude, Iran's goverment doesn't even know how to control themselves or their country and if anything, they are a threat to themselves not others.

Maddens Raiders3335d ago

I know the fractured heirarchy in Iran makes for....well, fractured messages and communication betweeen the people of Iran and the Ahyatollahs and Amenedinijad (sorry for spelling). The clerics run Iran, but the people of Iran are good people that want peace. All I'm saying is that if the REAL radicals of Iran get their way (just like any other radicals of the world), with the overall power of a country like that size, then it would NOT be a good thing for the rest of the world. If the extrmists get their way, they will bring Armageddon to our front porches. We must talk and work with the peace-loving level-headed people of these countries in order to enact change. As far as China goes, I don't see much hope there AT ALL. Take care.

MK, Iran would be the front in a Proxy war with the West for the "Reds" in Russia and China. Iran officially, and many sects in the Middle East which don't adhere to national boundaries, are doing their best to usher in the Final Imam and lay Armageddon at our doorstep.

Bill Gates3335d ago (Edited 3335d ago )

There was never a "Cold War" between Russia and US to begin with. It was always an illusion that the conservatives created in order to get control of the masses here in the US.

Create the problems, and offer them solutions. Politicians are nothing more than managers for the public.

US presidents are nothing more than puppets.

Don't become a sheep. Don't become an XBOT.....AHAHAHHHHAAHAHAHA

MK_Red3335d ago

Good points and comments Maddens Raiders and Armyless but I still don't believe they (Iran's extremist goverment) could do anything serious or important.

Yet, "If the extrmists get their way, they will bring Armageddon to our front porches."
True and disturbing.
Thanks and Take care :)

xionpunk3335d ago (Edited 3335d ago )

well for the comments about Iran, I wouldn't be so sure about them not being a danger. Russia has interests in Iran and has people working there. That combined with deteriorating US/Russia relations and their involvement with china, Iran has some support. Not to mention the fact that Iran has an actual military, unlike Iraq.
Also, dont be so quick to place all the blame for the US's current situation on the president, thats pretty short sighted. The world didn't really like us all that much before GWB was in office either lol.

when 9/11 happened it was the first time in a long time that a good portion of the World felt sorry for the United States and were opening their hearts to Americans, then George bush came and screwed it all up. End Rant.

Maddens Raiders3335d ago

George has completely fuct up America's image to the world and "we" the common folk of America have to take back our country from these chickenhawk power mongers. Thank God for term limits.

MrFurious3335d ago

Indeed USA is suffering Today from your gov foreign policy. USA is seen as a threat to the world stability and mainly since unconditionnal support to the Zionist colony, which is blowing all UN regulations and is clearly outlaw state by continuously torturing the Palestinians and destroying their houses. A UN resolution has determined that the Zionism is a segregationist and racist organization. So lind alignment of Bush to this colony is the main cause of your own disaster..bbut unfortunately for american people, the worst financial crisi is coming now, subprime crisis is just the beginning, your economy is totally sinking, cause of idiot fed bank policy since decades...

Armyless3335d ago

"unconditionnal support to the Zionist colony"

lol

HarryEtTubMan3335d ago (Edited 3335d ago )

MrFurious YOU ARE RIGHT... EVERYTHING IN AMERICA CENTERS AROUND CONSPIRACY AND THEY ARE ZIONISTS. I am majoring in theology and minoring in the study of the Occult and the United States of America are NOT the good guys tohey try to play. All these wars and forcing contries to convert to a "international Democracy" is just the international bankers taking what little of the world they dont already have. Just like the U.S. wont even be called the U.S. anymore in the next 2-3 years. Right now they are building a 22 lane super Highway from Canada down to Mexico and we are going to becoming a "NORTH AMERICAN UNION" just like Europe is now a "EUROPEAN UNION". Just like they have also taken the money that used to be backed by silver and Gold...and now a phony system where your dollar is only a federal reserve note and can be abolished in an instant. This is all in plans for a "NEW WORLD ORDER"... which is what it says is latin under the Illuminati pyramid on the back of the U.S. 1 dollar bill. Right now there is a "psychological warfare taking place in the U.S. nad has been every since this country was created. It has to do with secret societys(Which George Bush was in) and yea this is all VERY TRUE and many people. We are pawns in the game. Google: North American Union; All seeing eye; Freemasons secret societys, Bohemian Grove;911 truth

That is the truth... don't be tricked the proof is in FEDERAL DOCUMENTS I HAVE STUDIED FOR 3 YEARS. The IRS, Federal reserve and other things could be considered CRIMINAL because they ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE CONSTITUTION and greedy men afterward have taken this country over in hopes of uses Americas wealth to Excel the New World Order(Which has been planned back since Da Vinci ad the Templars(the Da Vinci code is allll about this stuff) THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE. YOU HAVE A CHANCE TO KNOW IF U DONT... ONLY IGNORANT AMERICANS DONT BECAUSE WE ARE STUCK IN THE TRAP. GO FIND OUT FOR YOURSELF AND STOP DENYING WHATS REALLY GOING ON. IRAN IS NOT OUT TO GET AMERICA!!! WE WANT THEM SYRIA, AND THE OTHER ROGUE CONTRIES IN THE MIDDLE EAST TO BECOME PART OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY SO WE CAN FINISH THE NEW WORLD ORDER... ITS ALMOST HERE AND THEY CONTROL THE MONEY! INTERNATIONAL BANKERS! GOOGLE: DAVID ROCKAFELLER-ILLUMINATI MEMBER

you are misinformed ARMYLESS I SWEAR TO GOD ON MY FVCKING LIFE!

Conversely, there may be a shortage of Lithium.

xionpunk3335d ago

as i said before, George Bush -while he hasn't helped our image- is far from being the one to have ruined our image in the world view. That really began after WWII during the Cold War, as the US increasingly became the dominant world power. The United states has more influence than any other country so it leads to distrust.

Unfortunately truth about 9/11 is still not published officially, too many things are showing that 9/11 is an inside threat organized with Cheney, UK Secret services and Co...and all propaganda zagainst russia and china passes through such kind of misleading info..
Lots of fake us companies have opened offices in China and launching such threat spoofing chinese identity.. be justr careful with information provided. Since long time, Generals and US Command are "predicting" a "war" against China, so really read twice before concluding!

Armyless3335d ago

No matter. We believe what we want to believe.
