  • Rebuttal: Cyberwar, Part 73

    [This was originally posted on attrition.org.] This is a rebuttal piece to a series of Tweets by Dan Holden on 2013-03-11 (displayed below). Please note, that @ErrataRob and @DesmondHolden both provided follow-up, which are included below my rebuttal. If you read mine, read theirs. If that isn’t acceptable, navigate away now.

  • Rebuttal: Yes, I have. Have you really? (on Cyberwar)

YOUR Servers could be next!!!“ This is the kind of crap coming out of so-called security companies and news media lately. The real irony is that they are using data from the Attrition web defacement mirror to support their hyped conclusions. Let’s take […]
