Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

Check the logo of the US Cyber Command, you will find a small code imprinted in the small gold ring:



Code:
9ec4c12949a4f31474f299058ce2b22a

There was a (very short) contest out by Danger Room to crack the significance of this md5 hash (now in the database of cracked hashes, the thingy that comes in handy if you need to recover lost passwords on your Windows machine).

After three hours the winner had it solved, it is the mission statement:

Quote
USCYBERCOM plans, coordinates, integrates, synchronizes and conducts activities to: direct the operations and defense of specified Department of Defense information networks and; prepare to, and when directed, conduct full spectrum military cyberspace operations in order to enable actions in all domains, ensure US/Allied freedom of action in cyberspace and deny the same to our adversaries.


According to Danger Room many people came up with more or less creative other (guessed/invented, of cause) translations:

Quote
   * “If you can read this, send your resume to jobs@nsa.gov.”

    * “I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.”

    * “If the intelligence community is a family, think of us as the uncle no one talks about.”

    * “Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra”

    * “In God We Trust All Others We Monitor”

    * “Why do people keep posting the wrong answers when someone solved it like 20 comments ago?”

Fun, this! It shows there must be some geeks indeed in this agency, it takes a stretch on my imagination to assume the "normal" beaurocrat came up with this...
