QOTD on Cyber Attacks

Nowhere is the need to act today rather than tomorrow more evident than in this area. A well orchestrated cyber attack can turn off the power in your house, your city, your country. It can shut down air traffic control. It can shut down banks. In short, a cyber attack can bring a country down without a single soldier having to cross its borders.

This is not science fiction. It is the real world.
-- Anders Fogh Rasmussen, NATO Secretary General

Note: emphasis is mine.
