Crack the U.S. Cyber Command's Secret Code!!

We might not know all that much about the new United States Cyber Command, but we do know that they have a badass logo with a mystery code to boot.

Wired cites a Cyber Command source who says it's not just random numbers and letters and it does decode to something specific.

"I believe it is specifically detailed in the official heraldry for the unit symbol," the source told Wired. "While there a few different proposals during the design phase, in the end the choice was obvious and something necessary for every military unit," the source adds. "The mission."

A shiny gold star for the first Tom's Hardware Guide reader to figure it out!
