The Estonia Cyberwar
Remember the “cyberwar” in Estonia last year? When asked about it, I generally say that it’s unclear that it wasn’t just kids playing politics.
The reality is even more mundane:
…the attacker convicted today isn’t a member of the Russian military, nor is he an embittered cyber warrior in Putin’s secret service. He doesn’t even live in Russia. He’s an [20-year-old] ethnic Russian who lives in Estonia, who was pissed off over that whole statue thing.
The court fined him 17,500 kroons, or $1,620 dollars, and sent him on his way.
So much for all of that hype.
