"..That's the thing about free speech. You don't have to like what someone says. But they do have the right to say it..."


@Marilyn Cohodas     Yes this is true.   But is there such a thing as responsible free speech ?   I think so, and I would expect leaders of industry to consider and practice this as well.

Re: Sony , B-Movies and $ 2 bins
"Aggressive propaganda" is an interesting way to describe how North Korea might perceive the movie. Though I wouldn't credit Seth Rogan & company with a political agenda.. just making a silly movie that apparently did pretty well in the (home) box office, in spite of the threats. That's the thing about free speech. You don't have to like what someone says. But they do have the right to say it...

Re: Sony , B-Movies and $ 2 bins
I don't think any national government would be happy with a production about murdering their current sitting leader.  It is not funny.  Not a good joke at all.  It would not be surprising if the agrieved country would take the production to be aggressive propaganda.

So Now What ?

Ok now that we have confirmed it was N. Korea - Now what ?   I have heard sanctions ...etc.   What real  difference is that going to make ?   Were we not doing business with them already ?  


I am hearing everything but what Sony is doing to clean house.   Oh I guess it is kind of hard to update the public while email is still down.

Sony , B-Movies and $ 2 bins

"...The Interview, the new Sony comedy about assassinating Kim Jong-Un, Clapper said he watched it over the weekend "and it's obvious to me that North Koreans don't have a sense of humor."


I am not sure how to take this statement.   Is this tongue and cheek ?  Flippant ?   Or just bad form ?    Either way  the comment does nothing to address the real issues here.   Whether you agree with Kim or not - that is not the point.   The movie was unnecessary and bad form - which is what Sony apparently does best.   You mean to tell me Sony executives could not find a better way to spend 50 M  ?   Who am I kidding ?   Of course not, they are Sony execs after all. 


That ridiculous given aside, I really don't think we should be wasting anymore taxpayer dollars on worrying about the N.Koreans in terms of Sony.   If they(Sony) want to produce completely disrespectful product ( in the name of freedom of Speech ) which is no better than a B-Movie comedy destine for the $2 bin.  

Don't expect tax dollars to clean up the mess  they make.

Everything You Need to Know About DNS Attacks
It's important to understand DNS, potential attacks against it, and the tools and techniques required to defend DNS infrastructure. This report answers all the questions you were afraid to ask. Domain Name Service (DNS) is a critical part of any organization's digital infrastructure, but it's also one of the least understood. DNS is designed to be invisible to business professionals, IT stakeholders, and many security professionals, but DNS's threat surface is large and widely targeted. Attackers are causing a great deal of damage with an array of attacks such as denial of service, DNS cache poisoning, DNS hijackin, DNS tunneling, and DNS dangling. They are using DNS infrastructure to take control of inbound and outbound communications and preventing users from accessing the applications they are looking for. To stop attacks on DNS, security teams need to shore up the organization's security hygiene around DNS infrastructure, implement controls such as DNSSEC, and monitor DNS traffic
