By chance, I happened to pick up the documentary film, 'Zero Days' (DVD), last evening and viewed it. I felt the need to ensure others have heard of it for it is not fiction but a very dangerous reality. Like other technicians/engineers here on the Monkey will tell you: this is no Hollywood/media hype, it is real, possible and currently happening. I have worked in the Computer and Communication industry for ~40 years and my degree is in Computer Science so I do have a bit of knowledge in the subject. Most know about the virus attack on Iranian Nuclear faculties (Natanz) in 2010 which caused some minor damage, destroying 984 uranium enriching centrifuges, but most do not know the rest of the story such as Iran's retaliatory attacks on Saudi Arabia and the USA. And, what I consider the most important aspect of the problem the real possibility of it happening here at any time but on a much grander scale. Should an EMP event occur, natural or manmade, most understand the effects. I assure you the effects and devastation of a major cyber attack would be equal or far greater; furthermore, the chance of it occurring is much, much higher. So, my point and purpose for this post is simple, while many might not prepare for an EMP because of the small chance of occurrence, all should prepare for a Cyber attack because it will happen, probably sooner rather than later. And, I would remind all, the USA has the most to lose in a cyber attack and the fact that we are more automated and advanced than some countries makes us more venerable not less. So, prepare... I greatly enjoyed the film, found it thought provoking, and I think all will be quite amazed at some of the interviewees and speakers. They made their point: there is a Cyber arms race going on right now and these weapons are very real and very dangerous and unlike nuclear, bio and chemical there is no agreement in their use. Synapsis of the film 'Zero Days' from IMDB: "A documentary focused on Stuxnet, a piece of self-replicating computer malware that the U.S. and Israel unleashed to destroy a key part of an Iranian nuclear facility, and which ultimately spread beyond its intended target." (Note by Bandit: It has not been proven it was the U.S. and Israel that wrote and unleashed Stuxnet on Iran...but the shoe does fit.) Definition of the term 'Zero Day': "A zero-day exploit is an attack that exploits a previously unknown security vulnerability. A zero-day attack is also sometimes defined as an attack that takes advantage of a security vulnerability on the same day that the vulnerability becomes generally known."
