White House leaks draft of CISPA-like cybersecurity executive order

The White House has leaked further details on a planned executive order that lets US President Barack Obama lay out blueprints for a program tasked with protecting America’s computer infrastructure following Congress’ failure to do so themselves.

The Associated Press has obtained a draft of what they describe as the cybersecurity executive order that has long been rumored as on the way but only recently confirmed by White House insiders. Last week, officials within the Obama administration acknowledged that the president was planning to release a directive to expedite protection of America’s cyber infrastructure, and now the AP says they have come into possession with a copy of it.

Among the AP’s claims, the executive order will establish a critical infrastructure cybersecurity council manned by the US Department of Homeland Security that will be staffed by members of the departments of defense, justice and commerce, and national intelligence office, who “would submit a report to the president to assess threats, vulnerabilities and consequences for all critical infrastructure sectors.”

The AP says the draft outlines rules for federal agencies to propose new regulations or broaden existing ones and includes other provisions involving the sharing of data between private corporations and the federal government.

The White House has not announced when the president will authorize the executive order, but its mere existence is all but certain to be a response to the Legislative Branch’s inability to compromise on a cybersecurity bill between members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Lawmakers in the House were able to largely agree on one such bill this year, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, but efforts on the part of the Senate to draft a similar bill on their own end were futile, leaving Washington essentially deadlocked on the issue, much to the chagrin of those they have made hawkish calls for an immediate and extensive law.

Had CISPA been signed into law, it would have offered incentives to private companies who shared personal user info submitted online with the US government under the guise of being a necessity for national security. The White House released a statement of administrative policy in response back in April condemning CISPA on the basis that it failed “to provide authorities to ensure that the nation's core critical infrastructure is protected while repealing important provisions of electronic surveillance law without instituting corresponding privacy, confidentiality and civil liberties safeguards.”

“Moreover, information sharing, while an essential component of comprehensive legislation, is not alone enough to protect the nation's core critical infrastructure from cyber threats,” the White House originally wrote.

The Obama administration said earlier this year that president would veto CISPA if a copy of the bill made its way to the oval office, but skeptics have been unsure of Mr. Obama’s take as of late, specifically after cybersecurity coordinator Howard A. Schmidt left his position within the administration in May. Now the White House has revealed their own plans for a cybersecurity bill that, while largely different from CISPA in some aspects, certainly borrows from some parts of that bill.

The AP reports that third-party companies will not necessarily be bound to sharing intelligence with the government in exchange for certain incentives, although they will be able to voluntarily provide information. Federal News Radio reporter Jason Miller claims to have seen excerpts from the executive order last week and described it more closely related to the comprehensive cyber legislation introduced by Sens. Joseph Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R- Maine) than CISPA, but added, “Sources say it doesn't advocate for rewards or more tangible incentives such as liability protection like the Lieberman-Collins bill does.”

More so, however, the executive order appears to lay down the groundwork for federal staffers assigned to a committee established under the directive to design further cybersecurity acts once the order is signed.

“The private sector would collaborate with the cybersecurity council and also cooperate with NIST in the development of cybersecurity guidance,” the AP describes the order, while also seeking “better digital defenses for critical infrastructure while encouraging economic prosperity and promoting privacy and civil liberties.”

White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden told the Washington Post last week, “an Executive Order is among the things we’re considering to fulfill the president’s direction to us to do absolutely everything we can to better protect our nation against today’s cyberthreats.”

Recent Attack on GoDaddy is False Flag Justifying Need for Cybersecurity EO

Customers of GoDaddy have reacted with anger. On a blog, there is a call for a class-action lawsuit against the hosting company for monetary loss due to the hacker’s success.

The mainstream media is suggesting that Anonymous is retailiating against the SOPA and PIPA bills that were shelved months ago. GoDaddy was in support of the SOPA legislation. Yet, the truth about the agenda behind the takedown was admitted by AnonymousOwn3r who stated: “I’m taking godaddy down [because] well i’d like to test how the cyber security is safe and for more reasons that i can not talk now.”

Activist Post: Recent Attack on GoDaddy is False Flag Justifying Need for Cybersecurity EO

============================

GoDaddy Says Crash Wasn’t Anonymous, It Wasn’t A Hack, It Wasn’t A DDoS. It Was Internal Network Issues

GoDaddy has confirmed that its DNS problems yesterday, which caused thousands of websites to go down for most of the day, are now over. And while an alleged member of the hacktivist group Anonymous was claiming responsibility for the situation yesterday, GoDaddy says that it wasn’t an external network attack that caused it, but rather “a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables.” - GoDaddy Says Crash Wasn’t Anonymous, It Wasn’t A Hack, It Wasn’t A DDoS. It Was Internal Network Issues | TechCrunch

============================

And just another article - GoDaddy outage was caused by router snafu, not DDoS attack
Web host debunks rumors that a debilitating DDoS attack took it down.

Monday's five-hour outage that left GoDaddy unable to serve millions of websites that depend on it for Web hosting was not caused by an external attack as claimed by an anonymous hoaxster. An internal network error was at fault, company officials said Tuesday morning.

"It was not a 'hack' and it was not a denial of service attack (DDoS)," GoDaddy Interim CEO Scott Wagner wrote in an e-mail. "We have determined the service outage was due to a series of internal network events that corrupted router data tables." - GoDaddy outage was caused by router snafu, not DDoS attack | Ars Technica

GoDaddy Outage Takes Down Millions Of Sites, Anonymous Member Claims Responsibility

According to many customers, sites hosted by major web host and domain registrar GoDaddy are down. According to the official GoDaddy Twitter account the company is aware of the issue and is working to resolve it. Update: customers are complaining that GoDaddy hosted e-mail accounts are down as well, along with GoDaddy phone service and all sites using GoDaddy’s DNS service.

Update 2: Anonymous is claiming responsibility. A member of Anonymous known as AnonymousOwn3r is claiming responsibility, and makes it clear this is not an Anonymous collective action. -

GoDaddy says sites are down; hacker claims responsibility

Web-hosting giant GoDaddy said Monday its customers are experiencing website outages, and a supposed member of the hacking group Anonymous has taken “credit” for the problem.

“Hey all, We’re aware of the trouble people are having with our site. We’re working on it,” said GoDaddy on its Twitter page. The company hosts hundreds of thousands of websites, many of them smaller businesses that rely on GoDaddy. - http://fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/godaddy-says-sites-are-down-hacker-claims-responsibility/20951/
