The Army Just Open-Sourced Its Security Software 

The U.S. Army is open-sourcing a code it uses to analyze cyberattacks. For the past five years, whenever a Department of Defense network has been compromised, the Army has used the Dshell framework to do forensic analysis on the attacks. This move is meant to encourage developers to add custom modules that’ll help the Army understand what happens when they get attacked. Since cyberattacks that happen to the government are often similar to the ones that happen elsewhere, letting non-government people give their input is a way to expand the Army’s knowledge of the kind of attacks that go down.
