One of the bastions of the extreme conspiracy ridden right-wing, WND (aka wingnut news daily) has as a lead story today “Red October Cyberattack Implodes” operation shut down after WND report.
Yes indeed. According to WND they pretty much singlehandedly brought down Red October. All hail the mighty WND!
Of course the dismantling of Red October has nothing to do with the Russian security researchers at Kapersky who first identified it. The explosion of discussion of it in the tech journals, the forums, the irc chats, the darknet sites….. Nor the coverage from the thousands of mainstream newspapers and magazines. Nor the myriad of hosters who started dismantinly the infrasture of the command and control systems.
Nope. it was WND. those great purveyors of truth who wield incredible power.
Of course, I suppose, this story is no more fanciful of devoid of reality then any other story they publish on any given day.
