Report on Symbiots iSIMS counterstrike software. I thought about it back in March after having read their report on the rules of engagement in cyber war (thought I even wrote a little about it but that turned out not to be the case; I only commented here and there). They think one has the right to strike back when under (DDOS)-attack. But the problem lots of experts see is that the internet can be congested once everybody is using these techniques. And Symbiot's advice to only use counterstrike when all else fails is just like handing a dictator an nuclear bomb whilst telling him he should only use it when.. Well, all else fails.
worrisome development. And hey: USD10,000 a month for this service, isn't that a bit too much??
