In the midst of a public fireworks demonstration, the sound of a snipers precision shot or the light-flash/sound/smoke of timed synchronised explosion may get drowned in the sound and smoke generated by the fireworks. The public firework event may serve a smoke screen for bad actors to carry out missions on home ground or outside home.  

Natural calamities have witnessed ordinary citizens turn into looters such as in Oklahoma, Katrina. Similar incidents are known in other parts of the world where failure of law and order is exploited by good and bad actors. 

In the context of declared Cyber War (limited scale/low intensity conflict scenarios or a Cyber COIN) between actor nations A and B, loose rogue cyber actors OR highly organised cyber criminals from ally/ non allys of A or B could exploit the situation as a cyber smoke screen to profiteer, experiment or cause damage.The presenting symptoms may add to the intensity/confusion of conflict between A and B. Actors could exfilterate information from both A and B for own gains or as future political ramsonware.

Given the cursory vulnerable scenario , it may be in the interest of A and B to develop safegaurds.What TTPs should interested actors,A and B develop to prevent exploitation of the situation where the A-B conflict serves as cyber smoke screen ?

Ich habe lange geraucht und auch lange Sport gemacht. Ich bestelle immer Mitarbeiter von vertrauenswürdigen Leuten, https://www.healthygarden.ch/de/ hier ist es das Beste. Aufgrund der Tatsache, dass ich nur guten Tabak rauche, ist es viel einfacher, als wenn Sie Zigaretten oder elektronische Geräte rauchen.

I think part of this scenario is going to depend on what the end-state of the cyber war will be.

Inevitably there will be criminal actors, hacktivists, and other nation states that will attempt to gain something.

IF this is a scenario in which infrastructure is essentially turned off in order to re-direct authorities to another location to allow other locations to be even more vulnerable for additional exploitation. Like taking down a power grid to part of a city and then breaking into a financial institution.

In a world that is on the cusp of seeing cyber crime overtake physical crime in the amount of money stolen, I ask you, what do you think cyber war is intended to do? Destroy hardware/software or cause economic ruin?
