IC Vídeo: Ciber War!

Inauguro hoje uma rubrica de documentários sobre IC e Infoguerra com este vídeo de 2003, do programa "Frontline" da PBS.

Cyber War

Cyber War In the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, as most U.S. intelligence shifted to finding Al Qaeda cells around the world, one group at the White House decided to investigate a new threat -- attacks from cyberspace. "In the past, you would count the number of bombers and the number of tanks your enemy had. In the case of cyber war, you really can't tell whether the enemy has good weapons until the enemy uses them," says Richard Clarke, former chairman of the White House Critical Infrastructure Protection Board. In "Cyber War!" Clarke and other insiders talk about a new set of warriors fighting on the new battlefield of cyberspace, and they evaluate just how vulnerable the Internet may be to both virtual and physical attack

In course of the documentary the team explores the possibility of ulterior motives behind the release of worms such asCode Red, Blaster and Nimda. They also confess that the power grid controllers and other important infrastructure equipment are wide open to hacker attacks as companies have invested very little in securing their own networks.
