Nart Villeneuve reminds me once again why I shouldn’t post articles that seem too hyped. Responding to the recent story from the WSJ on Chinese and Russian hacker attacking critical infrastructure, Nart gives them a full blast:
Articles like this are very irritating. They are short of detail and long on hype. And when that hype focuses on the wrong threat, it becomes the threat itself.
This WSJ article is a typical case. These stories are not new and the pop up from time to time usually focused on Russian or Chinese hackers — and in this case some unholy alliance of both (I’m surprised that Al Qaeda wasn’t thrown in to this “Haxis of Evil” ) Some have suggested that the article was planted for political purposes but, regardless, the hype seems to focus on the wrong threat.
Read Nart’s full reply, When hype is the threat. Remind me not to get on his bad side, ouch.
