‘Cyber’ War Games

January 31st, 2008 Posted in Politics & Current Affairs, Security

This is some interesting stuff!

“Apparently, the participants in the U.S. ‘Cyber Storm’ war games are familiar with the Kobayashi Maru, because some of them tried to cheat by hacking the games themselves. They also prepare for some very interesting scenarios. Among other things, the organizers are worried about having too many people on the ‘No Fly’ list show up at an airport, finding ‘mystery liquids’ in the subway, and having bloggers reveal the classified location of railcars with hazardous materials. The Department of Homeland Security has already analyzed the results of the games, and plans to hold ‘Cyber Storm 2′ in March.”
