Myanmar's Cyber Warfare Capabilities

The Asia Times Online has an extensive article on Myanmar's cyber war capabilities and alleges that it has received training and assistance from China, Russia and Singapore. It also provides some details on the types of assistance and the history of Myanmar's cyber capabilities.

The article also alleges that Myanmar's government is using cyber warfare techniques to disrupt dissident groups around the world:
"...the junta's cyber-warfare specialists appear to have wider designs than just censoring an uncomfortable anniversary and they are receiving plenty of foreign assistance in upgrading their political dissent quashing capabilities."
