Security measures are not enough to guarantee privacy and data safe from hackers and cyberterrorists

Several reports are claiming interesting things about how America's (and also the rest of the world) is losing the battle agains hacking and cyberterrorism. As for now, no system is 100% secure, not even those who keep vital data for goverments or national security.



"Your government failed you," testified Richard Clarke, a former cybersecurity and cyberterrorism advisor for the White House. He said that to Congress about 9/11, but now he's warning the people that we are defenseless when it comes to cybersecurity; our government has failed us again. Clarke stated, "Every major company in the United States has already been penetrated by China."

To begin with, the "United States government did the Stuxnet attack," Clarke claimed during an interview with Smithsonian. After dropping that bombshell, he then moved on to cyber espionage, stolen intellectual property and imported tech tainted with backdoor attack tools. He warned not to get him started on "our supply chain of chips, routers and hardware we import from Chinese and other foreign suppliers and what may be implanted in them -- 'logic bombs,' trapdoors and 'Trojan horses,' all ready to be activated on command so we won't know what hit us. Or what's already hitting us."

Shawn Henry, the FBI's 'top cyber cop,' told the Wall Street Journal the U.S. is "not winning" the war against computer criminals. Uncle Sam needs hackers because we are, in fact, outgunned. After 24 years with the FBI, Henry is leaving the government to take a different cybersecurity job. But before the FBI's executive assistant director leaves, he admitted, "I don't see how we ever come out of this without changes in technology or changes in behavior, because with the status quo, it's an unsustainable model. Unsustainable in that you never get ahead, never become secure, never have a reasonable expectation of privacy or security.''


This is only the top of the iceberg of this problem. You have more coverage and full report in the links below.

Security measures are not enough to guarantee privacy and data safe from hackers, cyberterrorists and other "unafilliated" sections of the US government when they can't push through laws to let them do it legally.

Sounds a bit more accurate as claims like this are usually followed by some atempt to do somthing they couldn't usually get away with under normal circumstances.

Well for one the US government could stop making enemies out of the people who are just simply curious about how things work. With each passing day the US government basically makes enemies out of many of it's citizens (not to mention the rest of the world) because of the things they try to do.

Through their actions they force people into taking a stance against them; people who would otherwise just go about their business without causing anybody any problems.

Maybe the US government should stop acting like Hollywood's little b*tch, so that us, common folk, could maybe once again be proud of our country.

they cant do that because without hollywoods bribes they might not be able to afford to win elections against normal people.
