Cyber/terror: US-Dienste attackieren Kanada

-.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-. --.- -.-. --.-

Der "Director of intelligence for Kroll Associates Canada "
warnt davor, Einschätzungen der Geheimdienstler zu ernst
zu nehmen - die Militärs hätten "sehr breite Definitionen" was
den Tatbestand einer Cyberattacke anginge.

Seiten weltweit geradezu konzertant geweint.

An American intelligence agency has determined that up to
80 percent of foreign attacks on US computers either
originate or pass through Canada. The claim follows
suspicions that some recent hacker attacks were routed
through Canadian computers.
The US Defence Intelligence Agency estimates that a full 80
percent of the attacks upon US systems originate in or pass
through Canada, the report stated.
FBI Director Louis Freeh recently called Canada a "hacker haven." FBI investigators believe one or more Canadian Internet servers were used in the attacks that recently disabled, eBay and other US-based commerci
al sites.

Colonel Randy Alward, commander of the Canadian Forces Information Operations Group, is quoted by the newspaper as saying the high number of hacker attacks coming from Canada is due to a high degree of computerization. Th
e colonel is reported as saying that Canada is a very wired country and that hackers will typically bounce through different computer systems to hide their original location.

The 18-year-olds allegedly used the alias "Curador" to hack into nine e-commerce sites, at least one of which was Canadian, from which they are believed to have stolen more than 26,000 credit card numbers and other person
al information, and posted some of it to other hackers.
However, Sam Porteous, director of intelligence for Kroll Associates Canada, a corporate security firm, warned against taking the intelligence estimates too seriously, saying the military often uses broad definitions of w
hat constitutes a cyberattack. He conceded, though that Americans have valid concerns about Canada, seeing the country as a conduit they don't control over, and that unnerves them, he told the newspaper.
