Russian spycraft ain't what it used to be

A wise note written by Johannes Ulrich of SANS Institute outlines cyber security lessons from the recent russian spy arrests. Clearly, information security tradecraft has not made its way into spy schools, at least not in Russia.

A lot of their failures trace back to a stealth search warrant a few years back that netted an encrypted drive. One of the agents fortunately noticed the slip of paper with an obscure set of letters and numbers: the written password. So it was a crackproof password, but they didn't take the trouble to memorize it.
