Terror expert: U.S. vulnerable to any ‘hacker or cracker’

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Terrorism expert Harvey Kushner says the most sensitive U.S. assets are at the mercy of any “hacker or cracker,” and the next major attack against the country will likely come through cyberspace, but he is also also cautiously optimistic that America’s best minds will be able to thwart the sinister intentions of its enemies. During a recent appearance on WNYW-TV Fox 5 in New York City, Kushner offered a blunt diagnosis of the cyber threat facing the American people and the nation’s most sensitive national data. “Any hacker or cracker from his or her basement can get into our national grid and get into our military hardware,” said Kushner in the Fox 5 interview. Kushner, who is also director of the Homeland Security and Terrorism Institute at Long Island University, said this level of vulnerability is the price of rapidly advancing technology. “The advances occur almost on a daily basis. So just when you have something up and you have it somewhat protected, somebody is able to compromise the system and get into whatever it is you’re trying to protect,” said Kushner, who fears the next major attack that succeeds against the U.S. will come from hackers. “I do think […]

Islamic State Terror Group Makes Alliance With Anti-Israel Hackers to Increase Cyber Attacks

index

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A number of Twit­ter accounts promoting the Islamic State terrorist group are col­lab­o­rat­ing with anti-Israel hack­ers in an effort to increase cyber attacks on behalf of the terror organization, the Anti-Defamation League reported on Thursday. The Alazm Cen­ter Twit­ter account posted a message on Jan. 13 asking hack­ers to con­tact them. Since then, a group of anti-Israel hack­ers called “Ter­ror­ists Team for Elec­tronic Jihad” has claimed respon­si­bil­ity for sev­eral attacks against Israeli web­sites in the name of the Islamic State. The hackers said they breached the web­site of a secu­rity con­trac­tor in Israel, a tour orga­nizer and other Israeli busi­nesses, according to ADL. Vis­i­tors are redirected to web­sites fea­tur­ing the name and flag of the Islamic State, along with the sig­na­ture of the hacking group. “Ter­ror­ists Team for Elec­tronic Jihad” declared their allegiance to the Islamic State in a video posted on YouTube on Nov. 29, 2014, ADL noted. They also have a Face­book page and a Twit­ter account that include mes­sages in sup­port of Islamic State terrorists. The group of hackers declared respon­si­bil­ity for the anti-Israel attacks in a state­ment posted on JustPaste.it, a file-shar­ing website the Islamic State uses to anonymously pub­lish its own state­ments. The message said, “Thanks to […]

The terror of Boko Haram

IMG_4994-1.JPGThe Nigerian jihadist group Boko Haram, which translates to “western education is forbidden,” has perpetrated what might be referenced as the worst attack in its history, killing hundreds of civilians in a remote northeastern corner of Nigeria. The widely reported estimate for the death toll of Boko Haram’s onslaught in Baga and sixteen other communities around the Nigerian side of Lake Chad is around 2,000. They have terrorized northern Nigeria since 2009, attacking police, schools, churches, and bombing government buildings. The group has also kidnapped students, including more than 200 schoolgirls who were abducted in April and remain missing. These attacks took place in a part of the country the Nigerian army has proved unwilling to hold and that the government in Abuja has been remarkably unwilling to contest. Years of institutional rot and regional tension have enabled one of the most vicious jihadist insurgencies on earth.

The recent Boko Haram rampage is taking place against the backdrop of Nigeria’s presidential elections, scheduled for February. The current president, Goodluck Jonathan, is from the country’s oil-rich southern half and is emphasizing his economic record while making every attempt at ignoring the firestorm in the northeast. Boko Haram, which comes from the Muslim and historically marginalized and underdeveloped north, some feel is trying to derail the electoral process and undermine confidence in Nigeria’s tenuous multi-ethnic, secular, and democratic order. As Brandon Kendhammer, a Nigeria scholar and assistant professor of political science at Ohio University explains, “Boko Haram’s gains may have had more to do with the weakness of the Nigerian state than with any long-term strategy.”

Nigeria’s army was once one of the most powerful in Africa, and it earned international respect for helping to pacify Sierra Leone and Liberia during the countries’ conflicts in the late 1990’s. However Nigeria’s politics and major institutions are highly regional and ethnic. The military has seen its leadership, preparedness, and hardware all decline in quality over the past decade, and has been accused of repeated human-rights violations in the marginalized northeastern parts of the country that Boko Haram currently controls.

The army has suffered defeats at Boko Haram’s hands in the northeast and has even deserted several bases. Boko Haram’s brutality, along with the military’s poor abilities has left the Nigerian army unable to operate in the parts of the country the group controls. At this point, the army also seems incapable of reforming itself. Nigeria cut off United States military training assistance in December, partly out of Abuja’s frustration that U.S. concerns over the military’s human-rights record had blocked any additional aid from Washington.

As this reign of terror continues in Nigeria, many are questioning the international response or lack thereof in light of the recent attacks in Paris at satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. An estimated 3.7 million people took to the streets to show solidarity with the victims. Forty world leaders joined the start of the Paris march, linking arms in an act of unity.  The world needs to demonstrate more determination to the group’s advance in Nigeria. This monumental tragedy must be vigorously acknowledged and stopped before more innocent bystanders are killed.
