    Cyber attack begins

    Friends in security circles this evening confirmed to me that the damage pattern of today's Code Blue and Rainbow attacks characterize them as the beginning of a much larger anticipated first wave of cyber attacks. Monday's Nimda attack also had an apparently secondary payload effect - the flagging of Drive C as shared - that may have been its primary intent, to open a new vulnerability path on tens of millions of machines.

    The first wave is anticipated to last 1-3 days with the third wave in full force (hundreds of simultaneous attack venues) inside 2-3 weeks.

    Harden up and lock 'em down!
