Cyber-warfare: Hype and fear

“Even as anxiety about jihadi terrorist threats has eased, thanks to the efforts of intelligence agencies and drone attacks’ disruption of the militants’ sanctuaries, fears over Western societies’ vulnerability to cyber-assaults have grown. Political and military leaders miss no chance to declare that cyberwar is already upon us. America’s defence secretary, Leon Panetta, talks of a ‘cyber-Pearl Harbour’. A senior official says privately that a cyber-attack on America that ‘would make 9/11 look like a tea party’ is only a matter of time.”
