US prepares first-strike cyber-forces

14 Oct

Cyber-attacks could inflict as much damage on the US as the physical attacks on 11 September 2001, the US defence secretary has warned.

“An aggressor nation or extremist group could gain control of critical switches and derail passenger trains, or trains loaded with lethal chemicals,” said Mr Panetta in a speech to business leaders held on the USS Intrepid – a former aircraft carrier that is now a museum.

“They could contaminate the water supply in major cities, or shut down the power grid across large parts of the country.

“Such a destructive cyber-terrorist attack could paralyse the nation and create a profound new sense of vulnerability,” he said.  –  BBC
