    Panetta says cyber attackers accessed controls for critical US infrastructure

    Defense secretary bluntly warns we're in 'pre-9-11 moment' that could precede catastrophic attack, hints Iran involved

    “They are targeting the computer control systems that operate chemical, electricity and water plants, and those that guide transportation throughout the country,” he added. “We know of specific instances where intruders have successfully gained access to these control systems. We also know they are seeking to create advanced tools to attack these systems and cause panic, destruction, and even the loss of life.”

    Be prepared...........(my point)

    I'm bumping this thread and surprised it didn't get any attention.

    “They are targeting the computer control systems that operate chemical, electricity and water plants, and those that guide transportation throughout the country,”

    Out of curiosity, if we did have this type of attack, how would you deal without electricity, water and transportation and are you prepared for such an event?

    This should not be a surprise to anyone who pays attention. We are essentially at war in a cyber sense 24/7.
