The Department of Defense's (DoD) Office of the Director of Test and Evaluation (DOT&E) has issued a report detailing vulnerabilities in the Stryker Dragoon warfighting platform. Recommendations from the DOT&E are to 'Correct or mitigate cyber vulnerabilities for the platform and government-furnished equipment.'
Recommendation: Immediately remove all affected rolling stock from active utility until the requisite. contemplated investigation is completed along with full remediation and/or mitigation (Call in the DoD OIG as well). Thoroughly investigate all systems with or without connectivity, and test for vulnerabilities ranging from standalone sabotage to electronic warfare perspectives (including 'cyberattacks', network attacks, physical attacks, radio-telephony attacks and coherent light incursion, inclusive of stand-alone, one-off opportunistic aggressor-delivered attacks) utilizing both automated and non-automated code review, network packet analysis, operating system examination, et cetera. All of this accomplished with the full rigor that can be brought to bear on this problematic deployment by the most powerful defense organization on Earth. Time to get this platform squared-away before letting our Nation's most valueable assets (our warfighters) loose on these lethal machines - of which, may prove to be significantly more lethal to us than to any particular aggressor enemy. - MH
