The Cyberwar is Here

Cyberspace Barrage Preceded Russian Invasion of Georgia: Apparently the actual war in Georgia was preceded by an online war against their network infrastructure.

[…] the Web site of the Georgian president, Mikheil Saakashvili, had been rendered inoperable for 24 hours by multiple D.D.O.S. attacks. The researchers said the command and control server that directed the attack, which was based in the United States, had come online several weeks before it began the assault.

Perhaps this is why the Georgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs started blogging from Blogspot sometime yesterday.
