May 1st, May Day, was dubbed "Blame APT Day" by @Unicorn_Threat on Twitter:
We declare that May 1st (May Day) will be #IBlameAPT day all your screw ups will be given a free pass just blame #APT You're Welcome!.. #UPT
In the wake of high profile hacks at RSA and Department of Energy, our industry and the general public are quickly learning that any compromise can quickly and efficiently be blamed on the dreaded "Advanced Persistent Threat" or APT. Such devious attacks simply cannot be predicted, stopped or blended with orange juice. It doesn't matter if your employees click on PDF attachments and open them with Adobe software, it is clearly the work of an APT!
In honor of these companies instantly blaming their own incompetance and security failings on "APT", and as a warning that attrition.org will fully blame the infamous "APT" the next time we get popped, we provide you with a new song to sing yourselves to sleep every night.. comforted in the warm blanket of security that only "blame APT" can bring you. To the tune of 'Sail' by 'AWOLNATION'..
