(Script) Kiddies, not Killers
Having tracked this issue for years for Uncle Sam I am struck by the complete lack of progress made on this front by terrorist groups. They have turned the IED world on its head in just a few years, but as the rest of the world rushes headlong into cyberspace sophistication, they’re still screwing with web pages. On the scale of things that can be done online, defacements are essentially graffiti that even the gov’t stopped worrying about years ago. As I argued then I continue to argue now; it is not for a lack of technical talent, but a statement by group leadership on the relative value of digital attacks: hacks don’t kill.
