A 38 North exclusive with analysis by Jack Liu. Recent news reports citing South Korean intelligence sources state that North Korea is preparing for its fifth nuclear test. Such a reaction to pending United Nations and US sanctions is possible given the North’s past behavior. However, an examination of commercial satellite imagery from late January […] Is North Korea Preparing for a Fifth Nuclear Test? is an article from 38 North: Informed Analysis of North Korea, published by the US-Korea Institute at SAIS.

A 38 North exclusive with analysis by Jack Liu. Summary The latest North Korean nuclear test at the Punggye-ri test site apparently surprised the international community as there were few indicators seen before it took place. Unlike the 2013 test, when heavy activity was seen in the weeks prior to that test, very little preparation […] The Challenge of Predicting Future North Korean Nuclear Tests is an article from 38 North: Informed Analysis of North Korea, published by the US-Korea Institute at SAIS.

ISIS to unleash TENS OF MILLIONS of jihadi hackers on West in blitz worse than NUCLEAR WAR

ISIS to unleash TENS OF MILLIONS of jihadi hackers on West in blitz worse than NUCLEAR WAR

The computer security expert, who invented the McAfee anti-virus software, claimed “fifteen to 25 percent” of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims are extremists, meaning ISIS could have an army of 400 million fanatical followers ready to strike at any minute.  Computer boffins at the terrorists’ headquarters in Raqqa have developed a secret smartphone application designed to spread Islamist propaganda and help followers carry out terrorist attacks from the comfort of their own homes. A team which may have included British hacker Junaid Hussain invented a feature which allows even the most computer illiterate of jihadis to launch sophisticated Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks against websites. DDoS attacks work by flooding a site with fake traffic, causing it to grind to a halt, and have been successfully used against some of the world’s biggest companies and government departments. Experts now believe that ISIS hackers carried out a major test of the app’s capabilities last week by launching an audacious attempt to bring down the 13 root servers which keep the Internet running worldwide. Whilst the attack ultimately failed, it did temporarily slow down services across the globe and has been described as an unprecedented attempt to strike at the heart […]

Pennsylvania nuclear plant worker to trial for child pornography police found on work computer

A former western Pennsylvania nuclear plant worker has been ordered to stand trial on charges he downloaded child pornography pictures on his work computer because he was bored.

The Beaver County Times (http://bit.ly/1l8UMkE ) reports 60-year-old Raymond Fischer Jr., of Harmony, will stand trial in May now that he waived a preliminary hearing last week.

FirstEnergy Corp. says the company promptly reported the images when they were found in October 2013, and fired Fischer from the Beaver Valley Nuclear Power Station three days later.

The state police Bureau of Criminal Investigation says 51 printed images of children ages 10 to 16 were found in Raymond Fischer Jr.

Most nuclear plants not prepared for cyber attack, says Chatham House

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Most nuclear power plants around the world are not well prepared for cyber attacks, according to a report by international affairs think tank Chatham House. Many of the control systems used for nuclear plants, including those in the UK, are not well protected and are “insecure by design” said the report, which was based on an 18-month study of cyber defences in nuclear power plants around the world. The UK is leading cyber security in the international critical national infrastructure community, David Willacy, manager of digital risk and security at energy operator National Grid, told a Cyber Security Summit in London in July 2015. “But there is still a desperate need for real cultural change in the energy sector in the UK and elsewhere. Those in the energy sector need to realise they are no longer just engineering companies, but that they are IT engineering companies, because power networks are now completely reliant on IT to operate, and that security is only as good as the weakest link,” he said. A key finding of the report was that the infrequency of cyber security incident disclosure at nuclear facilities makes it difficult to assess the true extent of the problem and may lead nuclear industry personnel to believe there are few […]

Elon Musk wants to drop nuclear bombs on Mars to make it habitable for humans

Dropping nuclear weapons on Mars would make it a more hospitable place for humans says Elon Musk

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk who appeared on the CBS’ new Late Show with Stephen Colbert to talk about cars and space, said that he has long been fascinated by Mars and shared some of his plans for making it a more hospitable place for humans.

“There’s the fast way and the slow way,” said Musk, who called Mars “a fixer upper of a planet.”

The slow way is to flood the planet with carbon dioxide from Earth to Mars, though that process would take a lot longer.

However, the fast way is much more interesting. “The fast way is to drop thermonuclear weapons over the poles,” said Musk with a completely straight face.

According to Musk, if you drop the thermonuclear weapons on the poles of Mars, it would warm the planet and then trigger a chain reaction that releases carbon dioxide into the Martian atmosphere, which will then continues to warm the planet.

“You’re a supervillain!” Colbert said. “Superman doesn’t say, ‘let’s drop nuclear bombs.’ That’s Lex Luthor, man.”

“People have called you the real Tony Stark. You’ve got your finger in so many different advanced technologies,” said Colbert, who was extremely happy to have the tech giant sitting in his studio.

Musk replied that he’s just “trying to do good things.”

“You’re trying to do good things, and you’re a billionaire. That either seems like superhero or supervillain,” countered Colbert. “You have to chose one.”

Though SpaceX reusable rockets has miserably failed recently, Musk told Colbert that his rocket firm, Space Exploration Technologies, or SpaceX within two or three years will be capable of ferrying astronauts to the International Space Station. Currently, SpaceX Falcon rockets has been fairly successful in delivering cargo to the ISS.

Of course, Musk could not get away without talking about Tesla. Colbert, who said he owns one of the electric cars and “loves it,” still managed to make fun of the Snakebot Auto Charger, a metal arm that automatically reaches for and plugs into the charging port of a car when the owner gets home.

World’s Nuclear Facilities Vulnerable to Cyber-Attacks

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

UNITED NATIONS, Aug 17 2015 (IPS) — As hackers continue to rampage through closely-guarded information systems and databases with monotonous regularity, there is a tempting new target for cyber-attacks: the world’s nuclear facilities. A warning has already been sounded by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which has urged the world community to intensify efforts to protect nuclear facilities from possible attacks. Pointing out the nuclear industry was not immune to such attacks, IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano says there should be a serious attempt at protecting nuclear and radioactive material – since “reports of actual or attempted cyber-attacks are now virtually a daily occurrence.” The United States, whose defence networks at the Pentagon and also its intelligence agencies have already been compromised by hackers largely from Russia and China, is increasingly concerned about possible cyber-attacks by terrorist organisations – specifically the Islamic State (IS) with its heavy and sophisticated presence on social media. Ironically, the United States reportedly collaborated with Israel to launch a virus attack on Iran’s nuclear enrichment programme years ago. Tariq Rauf, director of the Disarmament, Arms Control and Non-Proliferation Programme at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), told IPS nuclear power plants and the nuclear […]
