The Chinese gov’t knows that you’re reading this

From The Washington Post:

“Start asking security experts which powerful Washington institutions have been penetrated by Chinese cyberspies, and this is the usual answer: almost all of them.

The list of those hacked in recent years includes law firms, think tanks, news organizations, human rights groups, contractors, congressional offices, embassies and federal agencies.

The information compromised by such intrusions, security experts say, would be enough to map how power is exercised in Washington to a remarkably nuanced degree. The only question, they say, is whether the Chinese have the analytical resources to sort through the massive troves of data they steal every day….

“They’re trying to make connections between prominent people who work at think tanks, prominent donors that they’ve heard of and how the government makes decisions,” said Dan Blumenthal, director of Asian studies at the American Enterprise Institute, which also has been hacked. “It’s a sophisticated intelligence-gathering effort at trying to make human-network linkages of people in power, whether they be in Congress or the executive branch.”

According to experts, the Chinese hack everybody. They hack major corporations and steal trade secrets — attacks against Google, Apple, the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times have been publicized in recent years. They hack lowly individual dissidents. They hack, or attempt to hack, major agencies in the U.S. government, including the Pentagon, CIA and White House and most certainly the Department of Commerce. Given the byzantine ways of the Chinese government, they almost certainly hack each other as well.

The natural response to such a discovery is outrage, and to some degree that outrage is justified. It is, at some level, a violation of our national sovereignty. But it gets complicated because China is hardly alone. A lot of other countries are aggressive about hacking into overseas computer networks, including the Israelis, the French and the Russians.

Oh, and the Americans too. It would be naive in the extreme to believe that the U.S. government isn’t running cyber-spying operations of its own. Those operations probably don’t extend to efforts to steal commercial secrets of foreign companies so that data can then be handed to U.S. companies, which the Chinese and other governments do. But on issues of national security, we are no doubt just as invasive as anybody else.

In other words, while everybody is a victim in this thing, everybody is also a villain. Nobody’s clean.

It’s also important to distinguish between cyberspying and cyberwarfare. If you can penetrate a highly sensitive computer network and steal data, you may also be able to do great damage to that network at a time of your choosing.

As President Obama put it in his State of the Union address:

“We know foreign countries and companies swipe our corporate secrets. Now our enemies are also seeking the ability to sabotage our power grid, our financial institutions, our air-traffic control systems. We cannot look back years from now and wonder why we did nothing in the face of real threats to our security and our economy.”

And again, it would be naive to believe that the U.S. government is not building similar capacity to bring down important computer networks in other countries, just in case it’s needed. In this game, like any other, you need to be able to play offense as well as defense.

To handle such duties, in 2010 the Defense Department created the U.S. CyberCommand, which is now slated for a major expansion. Eighty percent of the thousands of new personnel to be devoted to the effort will be military; 20 percent will be civilian experts. In fact, some of that expanded operation may be headquartered right here in Georgia, at Fort Gordon outside Augusta. That would be a big economic boost to the state, given the potential high-tech spinoffs from such an operation.

In other words, what we’re witnessing is a quiet, high-stakes state of virtual warfare that will be permanent and escalating.

It’s the same issue we’ve had since forever. When we lived on open plains the issue was protection from predators and enemies. So we moved to caves, but we still had the issue of that open cave entrance. So we built houses. Then we invented locking doors. Then we built stone buildings. You get the idea. It’s STILL all about keeping out enemies and predators.

On the other hand, I’m horrified — Will those punk azz US companies expect the US to wage war on China in their behalf?

Then again, I’m waiting with bated breath — I wonder how good the Koch Brothers will look in a Kimona walking 10 paces behind some short studly Chineese male who has just made the Koch’s their beeeyooootches.

IMO insurance is the best Ponzi scheme ever invented. You pay into it for years, use it maybe once or twice – you may get a minimal pay out; they raise your premiums, (sometimes); and then when you’re older, they try to cut you off.

It’s the greatest scam in the world.

Insurance is not a ponzi scheme in that it doesn’t promise a payoff. You pay premiums for a period of coverage. If something happens you receive payment. If nothing happens no payment….but what you paid for was the potential repayment in the event of a loss.

Now if you’re social security to a ponzi scheme then you’re on to something.

I have a funny story about that! When my dad was stationed in Korea (and dragged the family along with him); we used to buy all this electronic equipment off the economy. We had EVERYTHING! And my dad had this big ole reel to reel recording thingie; anyway when we PCS’d back to the states, (to Ft. McClellan in Bama); we lived on the economy and I had a lot of “non military brats” friends.

Anyway, my mother invited a bunch of my friend’s mothers over for a get to know you brunch, and they were all impressed with all of our electronic junk that we had in the home. When i went to school the next day, everyone was calling me “the rich kid”. they didn’t know we bought that stuff for pennies on the dollar they thought my folks had paid full price.

Anyway, someone breaks into our house, steals our stuff, and my dad puts in a claim — gets back about 45% more than what he originally paid for the stuff.

When I was older, I asked my folks did they think that one of my friends’ mothers’ had set us up for the break in, (I always thought thats what happened, but I was never sure and i’d always felt really bad about it). My dad was like, “Yep. That’s why I always prompted your mom to have your friends over. I knew someone would hit the house and I knew I’d clean up on the insurance claim!”

He told me that’s how he could afford a new car every 2 to 3 years….

Insurance is not a ponzi scheme in that it doesn’t promise a payoff

Umm I’m gonna kinda disagree almost………

You are promised a payout when something happens to you while you’re insured with said company. You’re NOT promised a weekly/monthly check; but you ARE promised payment.

Check out some of their commercials on t.v. (I like those “I’m Mayhem” commercials); they all slyly suggest that they will help you financially if something happens.

How many bayonets does it take to fight a Chinese hacker shutting down the electrical grid and the sewer treatment plants?

Reminds me of the old Bill Cosby routing about Noah (whats a cubit)…. God was going to make it rain for 1 thousand days, Noah suggested 40 days and nights and wait for the sewers to back up.

“Maybe I should download some Asian bondage porn that shows Chinese men getting humiliated. If you’re going to hack my pc, you may as well have something worth looking at”

Sure, Bro. Nice way to cover for the Asian bondage porn on your computer. Yeah, that’s it. It was for the Chinese hackers! No honey, I find it disgusting too! Really, I would never look at the stuff!

Does the Chinese Government know how incompetent our TSA Airport Screeners are, do they just watch uploaded YouTube videos from the American flying populace?

Woo Hoo. My other Stalker is here. I wonder if it’s two or just one with a sock puppet?

Funny about how things come around to bite you on the arse. In Apr, 2011, Bozo, in full campaign to look more presidential and imply that he was cutting spending, stated that he would veto any attempt to interfere with the sequestration involving cuts in defense and social programs.
And just this week, surrounded by a bunch of first responders, he goes 180 and states if we do pass the proposed sequestration, we will be laying off hundreds of teachers, those first responders standing behind him and provide cuts in military spending that we cannot afford to do. Which is it, Bozo?

Does The Patriot Act allow the Chinese Government to spy on each of us as well and as thoroughly as our own government does, or does China simply hack our federal servers and copy what spy info has already been collected on us?

Wow. I was wondering if it was too early to start drinking beer in preparation for the race. Thanks Cosby for showing me it is and what drinking too early in the morning does to you.

I wonder if the Chinese go by the rule “you can’t put it on the internet if it isn’t true”.

Boy, will THEY be confused.

Which is why I sometime post complete falsehoods to facebook / blogs.

But it’s better to demonize those evil people who give money to support something that they believe in and, horrors……. make money at the same time…. lots of money. Eat your heart out, my dear.

k71 — How much money in TAXES have these manly men paid so that they good old U. S. of A. that they profess to love so much, can continue to do things like fund the military, fund the infrastructure and fund education?

And before you say, “They did all that they were legally told to do”, please think of all the VOLUNTEER military who willingly do MORE than what they’re “legally told to do; before you make that ridiculous statement.

Thanks!

Obama’s Hidden Baby Mama!!

Her name is Wu Tang; she a slight, beautiful, strong willed Chinese woman that Obama met his senior year of college in New York. She worked for the Chinese Consulate and she and Obama used to party all night in Harlem at the Wong Fu China Restaurant (good meat real good).

She says it was love for her, but for him it was only about one day ruling the world. They had a child together, a little boy named Big Bawls Tang………

Would the Chinese allow the able-bodied 0bama Supporters we have in this country to perpetually siphon money off the government [mammaries] to support no-job-getting lifestyles of sleeping until noon and doing nothing but watching reruns of “The Bernie Mac Show” and NBA highlights each day?

“Insurance is not a ponzi scheme”

Quite right. What it IS…is legalized gambling The insurance company bets you X amount of dollars you won’t have an accident for a year. If you don’t, they win and keep the money. If you do, they lose and pay the amount on your policy per it’s restrictions.

Chinese women don’t have enough booty for a brother. If it’s for my enjoyment, it has to be “Big, Bouncing Black Badonkadonk #17″ as nothing less will do.

When the uniformed hollar “Ponzi” very few even know who the man was, much less which of his schemes they are talking about. None lasted 75 years. Its a sign.
