ATTACK OF THE KILLER WORMS
Imagine a world where the US throws its weight around on some minor issue in a faraway land and demands that some other country knuckle under pronto or face the wrath. OK, so that was too easy. Imagine if the world's little countries could fight back, quietly, secretly, anonymously. Now we're taxing the ole imaginerium. This great article describes an attack method virtually unknown to the low information density types and even those who live outside the beltway. While it blames our very good friends and bondholders the Chinese Techno Ninjas there is plenty of room in these new-fangled computer gizmos for lots of malicious and damaging code. I used to reel in shock and awe at the damage a one year old could do with just a random swipe of her fingers across a keyboard. I shudder to think what could happen if we collectively lost the ability to flush or turn on the TV.
I'll be OK.
