Russia & Georgia: The CyberWar Angle

As the conflict between Russian and Georgia continues to escalate in conventional means, the war continues to escalate in unconventional ways: namely, cyberspace.   There have been reports of Georgia’s main governmental websites being defaced, and currently still unavailable to most of the world.  More insidious, internet access to and from Georgia is currently being routed through Russian AS–And wouldn’t you know it, but our old friends from the RBN (Russian Business Network) seem to be a large part of this digital blockade.  There have been times in the past day where neutral AS have been able to penetrate the blockade, but for the most part, it still seems to be intact.  Check out rbnexploit.blogspot.com not only for my sources,  but also continued updates on the situation.
