Security: Be very worried NATO uses hbgary

23 June 2011  |  7091 views  |  0

I have to speak out. You must remember hbgary, the company which apparently conspired with BoA/DOJ on ways (some illegal) in which to tackle wikileaks?

Well they were allegedly hacked by a 16yr girl in retaliation for their unethical actions and the CEO subsequently quit.

The company emails & files for ...well several years... are circulating on the web. They mention all sorts of fascinating US quasi-defence projects generally involving monitoring the general public, but amongst them are some pearlers.

This company, which by all appearances suffers from a complete lack of expertise and ethics is securing NATO's cyber infrastructure?

Many other sensitive installations such a Pacific Northwest Laboratories also appear to value hbgary expertise.

Perhaps the most interesting to some are the US COIN and Odyssey mass surveillance projects.

I'm just disappointed I can't get that wonderful every channel translated live satellite feed any more. Still there is the every email and tweet translated feed etc...

p.s. if anyone knows anyone at NATO security, don't be asking them for a reference, it may not be worth much more than one from hbgary.

Well.

http://www.nato.int/cps/en/natolive/news_75729.htm

Perhaps some basic security training, ie passwords would be in order.

A random sample of (alleged) NATO user's passwords :

NATO, natomovie, NATO**2008, access, Nebraska, my123pass, 123456,cancel,01password, oneacre, P@ssword123, NATOpass10, harley..., face1234, action, mazda323 & dragon13

Terrifying really.
