    Sir Malcolm Rifkind, chairman of the ISC, said cyber attacks could pose “very massive problems. I was in the United States a few months ago and a very senior intelligence figure said to me that cyber attacks, he feared, were going to be the United States’ next Pearl Harbor."

    We never know if the threat is as dire as they say or if we're being hustled for more taxpayers' dollars (here and in the UK), but no doubt in my mind -- our blind reliance on technology could bite us on the butt.

    China (govt of) cyberattacks the entire internet in the hopes that they can swoop in with their op-net (internet 2.0) & I think other govts are in collusion with them.
