Attention All Sydney Data Miners,

The Pentagon’s new U.S. Cyber Command has embedded a 32-character string of secret code in its logo, causing a stir among bloggers and curious techies eager to decipher the veiled message.

The new military command was launched in late May to help centralise Defense Department efforts to protect its computer networks, which are under constant threat from attackers.

The command was created to frustrate everyone from run-of-the-mill hackers to foreign governments looking to steal sensitive information or crash critical, life-sustaining computer systems.

Here is the code: 9ec4c12949a4f31474f299058ce2b22a

My guess: USCYBERCOM Cyber defense and offense
