United States Government giving bad advice? This doesn’t surprise me

Hello all,

I’m trying to space out articles, and trying to find some good content within all of the stuff we’re seeing.

In this post, I want to talk about an article I read dealing with security and the government. We all know that the government is the last place we turn to learn about security because of the recent breaches within the sector and other stories that might just make you start asking questions.

In an article entitled US Government Sites Give Bad Security Advice some governmental sites indicate that you should be looking for the “s” in the link as well as it saying in part: “An official Web site of the United States government”

If I were to phish these sites, I could easily write this statement on my web site, make sure I had the secure certificates, and ask for all of the data that the sensus is asking for.

I recently took the sensus for the first time, and it was accessible. I’m hoping that it goes where it is supposed to go, and reading this article makes me think that this wasn’t the best idea.

While this blog post isn’t talking about the sensus per see, one of the sites highlighted is this sensus site that we’re getting mail on.

Brian also talks about sites in the governmental sector that does not have this phrase on it, but I can see why he is saying that it is misleading because anyone can put things up like that, and can copy logos and put them up too.

Its becoming a very interesting world out there. What do you all think?

Cyberscoop has a video on their page, I’m not sure about Krebs at this time.

Russian law enforcement action against accused cybercriminals inside Russian borders is exceedingly rare.

I know that if I were to do something, that I’d be looked for and arrested or questioned at best. I would like to hope that this is the beginning of a change within Russia and other countries that just hack with no consequence.

The comment boards await.
