When I was a kid, Nuclear attacks was the threat. Now, its Cyber attacks. I wonder if i should still dive under my desk...hmmmmmmm
Yeah, we used to need fallout shelters. The new requirement will be for hack shacks...
I must say that the predicted plan would be self-defeating, since it seems it might wipe out the botnet used to implement the DOS attacks...
And I hate to say it, but from a security standpoint and from our standpoint as Webmasters whose sites are abused on a daily basis, that might not be a bad thing... at least the owners of those infected machines would be forcefully reminded to get and run an anti-malware program -- even if just a free one.
I definitely have mixed feelings on this.
Kind of a non-story if you read between the lines. Seems more political than anything...
This is the future trend of war !
I think in the near future, countries will go on war in cyber space rather than fighting man to man with guns etc.

I doubt a country will surrender simply because some of their servers are unresponsive.
Like any strategy, it'll simply be a small part in general warfare. In the end, you still need to put a real bullet between the eyes of the crazy tyrant that started it all.
Em maybe a little more imagination would help, imagine a wold where pilot less planes and drones and remote controlled tanks and helicopters fight for us, including a computer network which control nuclear weapons,i doubt you would need a solider with a gun,who knows in the near future robots would be doing the dirty work of humans.
My ping times haven't changed in over 3 years with my current host of choice, if anything they are now slightly faster.
Creating an expensive solution to a fictitious problem must be lucrative these days, worthy of stimulous money even...
This might sound somewhat funny to some, but I'm not making star wars jokes. I do not know if this is related at all, but my host, which is probably one of the 3 largest hosts in the US, was recently attacked by hackers, taking over all index pages of my sites.
I lost a day's adsense and have a feeling my home page was removed from Google's index since then.
