It took his team all of 2 hours to restore it back after it was discovered. I am not certain if they re-installed the server afresh with updated patches or else it would be vulnerable to an exploit again.

Re: Indian Cyber Warfare Discussion



What a non-sensical news item. The bureaucracy wants to hide its luddites who are ill-trained to use computers in general and Linux in particular by raising the bogeyman of cyberwarfare directed at it.

Internet Hindus are like swarms of bees. they come swarming after you at any mention of Modi Muslims or Pakistan! Ignoring them works best. Media thrives on attention, good or bad vibes don't matter to them. Notice what gets their goat is when A-list bloggers/tweeters ignore them old media types.

The easiest way to educate the congress woman is to tell her that all ilegal immigration from Mexico can be solved by giving back California, Texas, New Mexico and Nevada to Mexico.

Ahmadinejad is not going anywhere, despite the election dispute, and India should accept reality and make the most of it.
