US Army sets up special new task force to protect against cyber attacks

,----[ Quote ]
| The US Army has set up a new task force for the protection against cyber 
| attacks. The Defense Industrial Base Cyber Security Task Force (DIB CSTF) 
| will combat the apparently widespread theft of controlled but unclassified 
| information from computer systems. The group will have an annual budget of 
| $1.2m. According to a report issued by the US Army last August, such 
| incidents can "potentially undermine and even neutralise the technological 
| advantage and combat effectiveness of the future force".

"There are no significant bugs in our released software that any significant
number of users want fixed."

                        --Bill Gates, 1993

"Like almost everyone who uses e-mail, I receive a ton of spam every day. Much
of it offers to help me get out of debt or get rich quick. It would be funny
if it weren't so irritating."

                        --Bill Gates

| Spam volumes have doubled, and the Srizbi botnet alone was seen to be capable
| of pumping out an astonishing 7.8 billion messages an hour. That is probably
| worth repeating: 7.8 BILLION spams every single hour!

| computers connected to the Internet are bots used to send out spam, viruses
