    Dear all,
    Yesterday the consultants of the Matta Attack & Penetration Team
    released a white paper documenting an entirely legal
    counterintelligence exercise undertaken over 2 days against the CIA's
    Internet points of presence, using open sources of information.
    Our results can be found in PDF format at 
    The exercise was certainly an eye opener for the team, as internal CIA
    network space was mapped in some detail. Other Matta white papers,
    including those on wireless security best practice, IP network
    scanning & reconnaissance, and DoS, can be found on the Matta skills
