As we watch attacks increasing by the U.S. military, the real battleground is in cyberspace. A worm or extreme virus can take down the Power Grid, missile sites, and nuclear power plants, even for what many has become a god - The Internet.
Was the North Korean missile that exploded taken out by malware?
The FBI, NSA, CIA, and anyone educated in programming will tell you this is possible. It is unlikely a rogue state will write the code. They will buy it. It circulates on a black market which even includes even some sacred tools of our own intelligence agenices which have leaked. In The Underground live the hackers and people who even Homeland Security has approached for help. These are the warriors in a world which did not really exist 50 years ago.
The collapse of the infrastructure is far likely to happen as was written -
"This is the way the world ends - not with a bang but a whimper"
It began some 7 years ago - and has evolved a great deal since then.
In what appears to be the first confirmation that the Stuxnet malware hit Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Monday that malicious computer code launched by “enemies” of the state had sabotaged centrifuges used in Iran’s nuclear-enrichment program.
The surprise announcement at a press conference coincided with news that two of Iran’s top nuclear scientists had been ambushed Monday by assassins who killed one scientist and seriously injured the other.
comment: We have become soldiers - those of us who served and by some are now forgotten. Perhaps even as we end our lives we still can be of service to our countries and in our last days help to fight the most dangerous war of all - The First World War - in Cyberspace.
