A Russian computer security expert predicted yesterday that a large chunk of the Internet will be shut down by terrorists today.
Aleksandr Gostev from Kaspersky Labs was speaking at a conference hosted by Russian Information Agency Novosti. The cyber terrorists main targets will be the US and Western Europe, he said.
Oh well, everything seems to be ok up to now. And honestly I don’t think anything will happen.
Anyway, I’d truly prefer there be an online terrorist attack then a real world one. At least online we’re sure no precious innocent lives are lost.
Just a few websites going down and then they can be brought up again.
In the worst scenario, some money-making sites will stop making money for a while, but that’s about it.
