Pentagon official admits that even the US military would not have been able to stop the attack as quickly as the Starlink team.
Starlink successfully stopped a Russian cyberattack attempt to block the platform’s internet signal in Ukraine, the Pentagon revealed.
The most surprising, as revealed this Wednesday to Insider Dave Tremper, from the US Department of Defense, was the speed in blocking the cyberattack. For the Pentagon official, the US military would not have been able to stop the attack as quickly as the Starlink team.
Within a day of this attempted cyberattack, Starlink had “released a line of code and blocked the issue, and the threat was no longer effective,” Dave Tremper said. The head of the digital warfare office praised the Starlink countermeasure: “The way they did it was surprising to me.”
It is a very interesting case study to observe the agility that Starlink had in its ability to address the problem. The way Starlink was able to update itself when a threat appeared, we also have to be able to have that agility.”
Also at the conference, Brigadier General Tad Clark, from the US Air Force, explained that the country had to design a new system against electromagnetic warfare that was “more resilient and faster”, in order to respond to future threats “in a more efficient manner”. faster, more lethal and more resilient.”
