Behind the Scenes
It's been a busy day. The bugbear virus seems to be running rampant. I sent Doug Law the latest NIPC info and he made sure that the relevant items get screened. Doug is one of those kinds of people that are always productive and creative, but never get much credit. Doug's software regularly saves the state of Utah from cyber assaults like bugbear. Obviously, we have a lot of other things in place like firewalls, intrusion detection, etc. as well.
A group of Russian hackers took down the State Department's website earlier. Overall, it appears that hack activity has picked up a little lately.
