More signal. Less noise.

Daily briefing.

ISIL continues to use hostages in online propaganda.

The Senate Armed Services Committee declassifies an inquiry into Chinese cyber espionage against US Transportation Command (TRANSCOM — a unified, functional combatant command in the Department of Defense) and the details aren't pretty. More than twenty advanced persistent attacks (and around thirty other intrusions) occurred between June 2012 and May 2013, with attacks largely accomplished against TRANSCOM's contractors. TRANSCOM was aware of two of them, and the Senate attributes this institutional myopia to poor information sharing on the part of pretty much everyone: TRANSCOM, contractors (and subcontractors), the FBI, other elements of the Defense Department, etc. The campaign targeted both intellectual property and military information.
