Fight against Cybercrime
It is about time, the Chinese Red team were being tracked in the 90s by an individual who provided this information to the FBI, they arrested him when he provided this information to the FBI, but later let him go. There have been other organizations and individuals who provided this information to the government, they were arrested and shuned. They stated this was a terrorist act and instead of working with the individual, they arrested them; I see why people are hesistant to provide information the feds because of their past track records.

The projects the feds have in place from now and in the past are Eschelon, Thinthread, Stuxnet, Trailblazer, Prism, Nitro Zeus, Stellarwind, X-Keyscore, and may others perform mass surveillance but that is not the way to address a specific problem (mass dragnet will not do it, but with a comprehensive team effort from companies like Akamai, Cisco, Juniper, IBM, Amazon working together where we centralize and share our findings amoung govt entitles and private sector, will we be more apt to handle terrorist activities than individually, but that will be a hard task because everone wants to be first or popular in the eyes of their constituents - human nature).

If in the beginning, we had worked together with the right intent in mind (the serve the good of the public), then we would be more advanced in the work to identify and thwart attacks throughout the globe. We need an IT Oversight team who encompasses members of different groups to do the right thing (we need people who have an open mind, high-moral standards and a willingness to listen to reason instead of following their own selfish intentions only then we will be able to address the needs of the world).

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
