One Ring To Rule Them All

Our friends at Wired magazine mentioned that the newly formed U.S. Cyber Command has a new logo, above, which includes a secret coded message:

The U.S. military’s new Cyber Command is headquartered at Ft. Meade, Maryland, one of the military’s most secretive and secure facilities. Its mission is largely opaque, even inside the armed forces. But the there’s another mystery surrounding the emerging unit. It’s embedded in the Cyber Command logo.

On the logo’s inner gold ring is a code: 9ec4c12949a4f31474f299058ce2b22a

“It is not just random numbers and does ‘decode’ to something specific,” a Cyber Command source tells Danger Room. “I believe it is specifically detailed in the official heraldry for the unit symbol.”

The comments on the article are hilarious, offering numerous, er, unlikely translations (the real one is apparently "Poder Cybernautica," or "Computer Power", which if true is remarkably lame).

My two favorite suggestions so far are:

"All your base are belong to us"


“I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that.”

My own theory?

Ash nazg durbatuluk, Ash nazg gimbatul, Ash nazg thrakatuluk agh burzum-ishi krimpatul.
(Notice that it is engraved on a gold ring....)
