One week after the Israeli army formally recognized cyber weapons as a
fourth dimension of warfare, alongside land, air and sea, the defence
minister on Wednesday sang the praises of digital weapons, saying that they
can attack and conquer enemy assets without leaving a trace.

Trouble is...Israel has the same vulnerability regarding cyber attacks from
other nations.

That makes it equal then...All in deepshit together... J.

At some stage in the near future, given the speed at which this area of
technology is developing; there is going to be a really big cyber attack on
a nation state, which will be successful, if our intelligent services aren't
careful...and the whole infrastructure of something like financial services,
a stock exchange or two, or the power supply, or water supply will fail.
Maybe the time is arriving for some kind of international agreement and
social contract between peoples, states and individuals which protects us
all from such things...but, such a course is highly unlikely... Experience
dictates that it has to happen really big...before they believe that they
are not impervious...
