I was intending to raise this point some months back but due to other pressing issues I had forgotten to do so. It relates to a quote used in a presentation from Nokia 'The known unknowns of SS7 and beyond: Evolution of Telco Attacks'.
Are cyber events such as DDoS, Malware, SS7 attacks, Dirty/Nasty USSD, dirty data_ark and so on following some sort of noble objectives to be comprehended from quotes e.g. Sun Tze's philosophy "The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting"?
Even if that were correct or true how does it help define which events are isolated and which events are or have characteristics of intended aggregation to bring about a sustained campaign of subjugation?
