Cyber attack against Estonian government


You might have been surprised not seeing any reference on my Webl0g about the cyberwar that took place between Russia and Estonia for about three weeks recently. (it began at the end of April)

Well, I have to admit I haven't been having much time recently to spend here, and then, well ... I guess you've read about it in plenty different websites...
To be honest, I thought such kind of things would happen years ago. After all, botnets have always been able to DDoS (even a few old eggdrops are enough sometimes...) and it wouldn't have been surprising to see successfull DDos against some special networks earlier...

Anyway, what happened in Estonia is definitely alarming ... Enough for NATO to study it at least ...And for Bruno Kerouanton to speak about it during his rump session at SSTIC 2007...

As usual, mainly because I'm missing time, I found a good article on the web about it, and it's HERE, coming from Counterterrorism Blog

Thanks Cedric about your post. I am currently writing an "add-on" for my contribution to the "Club des Vigilants" (www.clubdesvigilants.com), a french Think-Tank I'm involved in. you're right, this kind of attack could have occured a long time ago. Most cybercriminals just want to stay undetected and avoid to the extend any hype and mediatic effect. This was ahmo a simple demonstration of capabilities...
