The media has definitely been busy the past few months. There have been some very high priority compromises and news generating events recently. Some of the big headlines have been Epsilon breached and customer emails stolen, RSA SecurID compromised, Another attack against Iran?, FBI takes offensive against Coreflood Botnet, and Sony Playstation Network compromised and ALL personal data stolen. The term APT (advanced persistent threat) has also been thrown around in a lot of the compromises and it makes me wonder if these are isolated insentients or if they may be related in some way. Can we also expect to keep getting some of these high profile compromises or will they die down?
I love a good conspiracy so I would like to hear that they are all related and this Blog post by Krypt3ia strengthens my belief even more that China is up to no good and possibly ramping up for an all out attack in the Cyber Domain. Only time will tell but until then, I will keep theorizing about my conspiracies.
