The SCOOP about DISA

Postby Vlad » Wed Jan 06, 2010 4:01 am

On June 25, 1991, DCA was renamed DISA to reflect its role in providing total
information systems management for DoD. DCA implemented several Defense
Management Report Decisions (DMRD), most notably DMRD 918, which created the
Defense Information Infrastructure, now known as the Global Information Grid. DISA
consolidated several information processing centers into 16 Defense megacenters
and, within a few years, consolidated them further into five mainframe-processing
centers. The Joint Spectrum Center and the Defense Technical Information Center
also became part of DISA. Employment peaks at more than 12,000 military and
civilian members.

Today, DISA is in the process of consolidating computing services even further; by
September 2005, DISA computing services will consist of one headquarters
component, four production system management centers, and several optimally
staffed processing sites. Approximately 8,000 military and civilian employees work in
DISA, and with the consolidation of computing services that number will be reduced by
another 1,200.


DISA has been awarded five Joint Unit Meritorious Service Awards and continues to
offer DoD information systems support, taking data services to the forward-deployed
warfighter.

History of DISA

The Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) was established in Washington,
D.C., as the Defense Communications Agency (DCA) with 450 employees on May 12,
1960, by Secretary of Defense Thomas B. Gates. Its mission was to manage the
Defense Communications System (DCS), a consolidation of the independent
long-haul communications functions of the Army, Navy, and Air Force.

In the 1960s, DCA moved to Arlington, Va., and took on several major organizations.
The Air Force Office of Commercial Communications Management (now the Defense
Information Technology Contracting Organization), White House Signal Agency (now
the White House Communications Agency), and the Department of Defense (DoD)
Damage Assessment Center (now the Joint Staff Support Center) all became a part of
DCA. DCA also established six regional communications control centers and two area
centers for operational control of the DCS.

In the 1970s, DCA picked up the Minimum Essential Emergency Communications
Network and the Military Satellite Communications Systems Office. It also became
responsible for engineering and operating the Worldwide Military Command and
Control System.

In the 1980s, DCA absorbed the Joint Tactical Command, Control, and
Communications Agency, improving its ability to manage and enhance the
interoperability of command, control, and communications systems. The Joint
Interoperability Test Command was formed within DCA to provide interoperability
compliance testing and certification.

On June 25, 1991, DCA was renamed DISA to reflect its role in providing total
information systems management for DoD. DCA implemented several Defense
Management Report Decisions (DMRD), most notably DMRD 918, which created the
Defense Information Infrastructure, now known as the Global Information Grid. DISA
consolidated several information processing centers into 16 Defense megacenters
and, within a few years, consolidated them further into five mainframe-processing
centers. The Joint Spectrum Center and the Defense Technical Information Center
also became part of DISA. Employment peaks at more than 12,000 military and
civilian members.

Today, DISA is in the process of consolidating computing services even further; by
September 2005, DISA computing services will consist of one headquarters
component, four production system management centers, and several optimally
staffed processing sites. Approximately 8,000 military and civilian employees work in
DISA, and with the consolidation of computing services that number will be reduced by

The Defense Information Systems Agency is a United States Department of Defense combat support agency with the goal of providing real-time information technology (IT)

and communications support to the President, Vice President, Secretary of Defense, the military Services, and the Combatant Commands.

As part of the Base Realignment and Closure, DISA is in the process of moving from Arlington, Virginia to Fort Meade in Maryland, and will complete the transition by

September 2011.[1][2]

DISA's role in DoD information management continued to expand with implementation, in September 1992, of several Defense Management Report Decisions (DMRD), most

notably DMRD 918. DMRD 918 created the Defense Information Infrastructure (DII), now more commonly understood as the GIG. At the same time DII was implemented, the

concept for the Defense Information Systems Network was created. The DISN consolidated 122 DoD networks, offering more efficient support to the warfighter.[3]

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DISA

A very little known and insidious Government Agency, we had no idea about DISA's existence until sometime, in A.D. 2000, as follows:

Here it is, for future use and for the future of our sons/daughters

We found out about the existence of DISA, the hard way, back in 2000, when they constantly probed our system - WIN 98. We had Norton Firewall at the time. They were probing every computer on the Internet, not just ours. Running a WEB BOT, as they call it nowadays.

We are proud to say, that we caught them red handed.

This is what Norton reported:

Xferred to..800-357-4231---talked 20 min - They would not admit to anything, except that there may be a hacker trying to get through.
Yeah, right. A hacker using US GOV computers to probe the NET??

Notice the time lap/gap and intervals? About every 10 minutes.
We have more "proof", if needed, the above being just samples of hacking attempts.

Nowadays, Microsoft is specifically leaving open PORTS, with every update that you, (in good faith), are requesting from Microsoft.
These backdoor open ports are unknown, and they can be switched ON and/or OFF, as Microsoft chooses, for both MS and GOV usage.

We thank Microsoft for all the good things they provided,

ANY COMMENTS, PEOPLE?? IS THERE ANYBODY OUT THERE???
