Fox News reports that “the U.S. Army is harnessing the knowledge of the open source tech community in an attempt to bolster its cyber defenses.”  

“Army tech experts have released a version of the Dshell forensic analysis code on the GitHub social coding site with the goal of better understanding compromises on Pentagon networks.”  

“Dshell is a framework that lets users develop analysis modules based on security issues they encounter. Since the code was added to GitHub on Dec. 17, 2014, it has been downloaded more than 100 times, according to the U.S. Army Research Lab (ARL).”
