-- story now if you've been shot out from online banking with Capital -- that you're not alone it is believed this cyber attack target by Muslim extremists the bank released a statement this afternoon acknowledging the attack -- saying in -- quote.
We have no reason to believe that customer and account information is at risk.
But we now have word most of Capital One's online service has been restored.
Some of its customers would be attackers say it is just the beginning.
And they're planning attacks and two other banks tomorrow and Thursday for insight we turn to Morgan right.
For terrorist analyst welcome back to the show Morgan.
Ask you think if you announced that you're about to attack is that good cyber attacking or does that sort of diminished the return and -- if you announce exactly where you're going.
Actually it's better marketing better it is being a cyber attacker so mean that they're getting -- word out -- this relates a marketing -- what it -- -- their people are talking about it they're talking about a far longer than the attack actually occurs.
And it's part of -- Don't personal belief having come from the law enforcement and intelligence field I believe this is actually a calculated action by Iran.
To make sure that somebody else the focus is on them as they continue to.
Under -- support these attacks.
And yes although I mean my -- is among the ones that have been attacked already.
Hated notice anything it was a really -- can be -- -- doesn't seem like they really have that much success so far.
So does it is it good marketing if they're doing and customers are really seeing any maybe it's slowed down your day a little but not really.
Yeah it depends upon you gotta remember to what was their objective was -- -- take down the banker to -- greater awareness for them I mean what happened after the first set of attacks this went from being a garden -- type of attack -- fire hydrant you know far house.
So people of learn from that you know the financial service information sharing analysis -- -- put out information.
DH SUS Secret Service put out information so people have had a chance to deploy.
And -- counter measures to these attacks.
So it's not gonna be a successful the second time but the question is what's the definition of success is that actually -- attack or is it the marketing -- -- -- -- -- generating by doing this well.
Art I mean the banks in danger how can they protect themselves -- they -- good job.
I think they're doing a good job look banks have always been a target it's like that -- line and men in black sun were always under attack.
Banks are always under attack that they've been dealing with the most sophisticated types of -- caught a sense and efforts against their infrastructure so with that -- service you don't know -- is compromise you know your funds are not at risk.
It's simply trying to put ten pounds spam to a five -- candor is just not enough resources.
Left for people to access the -- -- -- -- banking.
It -- these guys and now that you said it's all about marketing and specifically not going to say their name but but what are they all about why why are they doing this I mean -- AME you make a great point you know we're giving them commercial time by saying and I haven't said it's -- knock on the.
Well and we won't mention about actually so this action of them are actually are Hamas military wing.
And they they are not known for have any technical capabilities.
Who however though are they are Sunni Iran is Shiite and has -- -- night.
So sometimes terrorism as well as politics make strange bedfellows somebody needs to be a proxy -- -- Stalin once said sometimes you need useful idiots.
This is their version of that they're getting somebody else to did deflect the attention and Iran can go.
We have plausible -- ability were not involved in this but at the same time there's no doubt and a lot of people in the intelligence community and senator Lieberman even said.
There's there's no doubt Iran -- it has a hand in this if not directly behind because it requires at this level requires state sponsorship.
Is this the new warfare and how dangerous is it -- every day it seems like we hear about a new cyber attack whether it's.
Attacking you know -- installations oil platforms.
You know it it -- But the CI whoever you know I mean it seems like this is the new way to attack another country how dangerous is it an exists if -- You're.
Not it's dangerous enough that the air force created it's a separate domain of cyberspace know air land sea water -- now cyberspace so.
Absolutely no doubt people take this the question is at what point.
Does it about elevate itself to require a -- strike.
You launch a missile love somebody launches a missile at Israel they can repealed they can respond as they did today -- What kind of cyber that does it take before you say now -- and -- use physical force we're gonna bomb something we're gonna blow something we're gonna kill somebody Russian based on the electron.
Attack that they did and and we don't really know the answers -- -- we haven't seen it yet who's that fast ad attacking and who's the best at depending real quick before we go.
-- -- -- We divested attacking me countries China I've -- on several segments with China do not underestimate the capability.
North Korea's just that -- there and ankle biter and the best -- defending I mean really the United States and a lot of areas.
The banks have become very good at this and a lot of sensitive installations private sector have a lot more to lose.
So there's no one person let's get out -- you just gotta stay on top of that -- would have to do it it evolves every day.
Morgan right a lot of great information thanks for coming on tonight to --
