An anonymous reader writes “Wikileaks cables released overnight revealed that Australia’s top cyber spy agency (akin to the NSA) was unprepared for cyberwar in the view of other intelligence agencies in 2008. Australian agencies were so concerned they asked US intelligence to provide the framework to defend the country’s critical information infrastructure, modelling on the Comprehensive National Cybersecurity Initiative. Spooks also discussed how Israel was preparing to take down Iran’s nuclear program and how to stay relevant when so much information that was classified was now open source and available to anyone.”
