Stuxnet was a media and social hack just as the UK were after funding of Strategic Defence and Security Review (SDSR) of 2010.
I'm saying no more about this. You can speculate and rant forever on this subject and never really get anywhere.
All you can do is look at the global climate and timing of the worm.
Vendors were desperate to push their industry to government, they managed to get Marcus Sachs to leature the Whitehouse on cyber-security to get them to take it seriously, just before worm deployment.
This was to raise the profile of the so-called cyber-security and the perceived risk.
This was a lot to do with money, this was a lot to do with individuals jockeying for position in the political realm.
This was a lot to do with vendors looking for a new profit-vector.
My opinion is the cyber-security push and Whitehouse involvement and cyber-czar appointment is the biggest fraud against Whitehouse trust of recent times.
Advisors took the cyber-security perceived threat and ramped it up artificially.
If the U.S Government and the Whitehouse need proof they've been conned, watch this video:
I've been pushing this video now for years, as evidence of what was going on just before Whitehouse and Stuxnet era of the so-called cyber-security perceived risk.
Mr. Sachs has since stepped down from SANS Internet Storm Center, as director, and what a sigh of relief.
The Whitehouse has been defrauded on the cyber-security issue on a false-pretense.
The same kind of mentality, which took us into the war in Iraq.
One would think US were past that mentality, but it looks as if you guys still have work to do to weed out the knotweed from the political system.
In a long term trajectory, there is going to end up a cyber-war-Iraq-like situation, in that, Whitehouse has been given misleading intelligence by security advisors, simply to ramp up the status of the IT Security industry into the frontpage headlines of western media and social influence.
After the first cyber-war proper, we will be regretting it, the same as we're regretting the so-called regime change of Iraq.
It will be exposed that indeed the cyber-war was started on a false pretense, by folks at the Whitehouse who put trust in their security advisors, because ultimately they have no choice, but will realise afterwards the threat of cyber-security and cyber-war wasn't as real as it was made out, and that it was more a political threat than it was a national security physical threat to anyone.
We will be taken into a cyber-war proper, no it won't be just, yes it will be on a false pretense, and no there won't be a real need for it.
Apart from to line the pockets of tycoons and to protect political status and to reinforce it.
