Loose Lips Sink Ships
“Loose lips might sink ships” was a security phrase created by the War Advertising Council and used by the United States Office of War Information in World War II.
The slogan was very short and to the point. If you are talking about anything that is related to a warship, then your talking (loose lips) might just sink that warship. And that still holds true today. In fact, HUMINT (Human Intelligence) is HUGE in today’s online world. And
Ukrainian Instagram influencer Anna Alkhim (who has 600,000 followers on Instagram) is to blame for Russian launching a lethal missile attack on a Ukrainian field hospital in the eastern city of Dnipro.
Alkhim has since been publicly denounced for her lack of OPSEC discipline.
I’m not going to bash Alkhim, as it could happen to anyone, we all need to be very careful of what information we post online.
Various online sources are reporting at least four dead and 30 or more injured.
