Only One Hacker Could Kill Us All

Why use a Sharpshooter when a Shotgun will Work?

Never ceases to amaze me!  Here’s 14 year hacker, tired of breaking into Ms. Sara Palin’s Hotmale account, so he goes after a Pentagon account, say, Bobby Gates?  Now we’re Nuking either China or Iran.

The Pentagon is contemplating an aggressive approach to defending its computer systems that includes preemptive actions such as knocking out parts of an adversary’s computer network overseas – but it is still wrestling with how to pursue the strategy legally.

The department is developing a range of weapons capabilities, including tools that would allow “attack and exploitation of adversary information systems” and that can “deceive, deny, disrupt, degrade and destroy” information and information systems, according to Defense Department budget documents.
