Windows 7: Ready for Cyberwar?

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Ready for Cyberwar?


Amid all of the media and public fascination with threats like Stuxnet and weighty terms such as “cyberwar,” it’s easy to overlook the more humdrum and persistent security threats, such as Web site vulnerabilities. But none of these distractions should excuse U.S. military leaders from making sure their Web sites aren’t trivially hackable by script kiddies.

Security vendor Imperva today blogged about a hacker who claims to have access to and control over several top dot-gov, dot-mil and dot-edu Web sites. I’ve seen some of the back-end evidence of his hacks, so it doesn’t seem like he’s making this up. Perhaps out of deference to the federal government, the Imperva folks blocked out the best part of that screen shot — the actual names of the Web site domains that this hacker is selling. For example, the hacker is advertising full control and root access to, a site whose stated purpose is “to develop, acquire, provide and sustain world-class…systems and Battle Command capabilities for the joint warfighter.” It can be yours, for just $499 (sorry, no credit cards accepted; only the virtual currency Liberty Reserve).

Boot Ready CDs/DVDs won't boot even after they are boot ready!
The screen says: CD/DVD-ROM Boot Priority: Boot Ready But it goes to the regular boot screen. If it wasn't reading the disk, it wouldn't be saying Boot Ready. It is arranged to boot from the CD-ROM, otherwise, it wouldn't be saying CD-ROM Boot Priority.
