    For Laughs or Warnings:

    I learned from a friend that this Forum used to be in the Federal Watched/Restricted access lists under the rubric:
    "Criminal Skills Site".

    Alas, it is not anymore. . .

    One must wonder how many of us are on a "list"... and if anything will be done about that.

    One may safely "assume" that a great many governments, and alot of private organizations are devoting a great deal of time and resourses to working on both "offensive" and "defensive" consideration of cyber attacks. Since much of the world's information flow and financial transactions take place on the Net, it simply makes logical sense that those who rely on it would consider how to make it more secure and that those who always are planning for a "worst case" circumstance are considering how they might prevent an attack on their own facilities and/or how they might disable those of other nations and/or organizations should the "need" to do so arise.

    Such "prior planning" and "preventative" investigations are nearly always going on in vary many places around the world and occasionally "Testing" of such efforts are instituted to "probe" the systems of "the others." many such "incidents" occur and only some of them are reported.

    I'm on a list alright ... a mailing list ... I and a bunch of other people recieved that email yesterday morning, except the required skills said

    Minimum of 10+ years of hard core experience, including extensive DoD / federal government experience.
    I do wonder how many people with a TS/SCI clearance and ten years experience reversing read woodmann ... post anonymously if you're out there.

    Wait! I thought it would be "required" reading for such people!

    Oh, woodmann certainly contains a huge amount of information that's worth reading; I was more wondering _how many_ people with those qualifications that there are in the world. 50? 500? 5000? We shall never know the answer.

    I recall when Daniel Elsberg released "The Pentagon Papers" about how the U.S. got more involved in the Viet Nam War.

    As a "fallout" of his "Top Secret" clearance and publication of a whole pile of "Top Secret" materials, there was a wholesale re-evaluation of security clearances and a whole bunch of people were "downgraded" from "Top Secret" to a much narrower classification of merely "Secret." At the time, there was some question of whether such people were going to be allowed to see any of the files in their own file cabinets, since a great deal of them were stamped "Top Secret."

    There was talk about creating a rubber stamp which proclaimed, in capital letters: "FOR IDIOT EYES ONLY...TEAR UP BEFORE READING!!!"

    It could be quite humorous what rated a "Top Secret" stamp.

    The military mind can be a beautiful thing.
