    wow - its like I'm just reading a summarised version of a dailytech article, oh hang on:
    http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=16463 - I am!

    oh no I'm mistaken - it contains the word 'TERROR!' so it makes all the difference.....

    Re: News - Study warns of need to wake up to cyber threat

    Difficult to comment without reading the original report, but from the Daily Tech's version, on the one hand it highlights the threat, but says that defence shouldn't be a priority, then it says that it causes damage to the US, but counter offensive cyber warfare bothers but doesn't disarm a potential enemy?

    So is it a serious threat or not? Difficult to tell from the Daily Tech report which is 'wooly'. Either they don't understand the study, or the study isn't worth the paper it is written on - but the only way to tell is to read the original source material with an informed mind.

    Really, if you can't tackle the offensive elements of an attack, you can control the defensive elements, and that's where the focus should be.
