Cyberhacks Blacked Out Cities

Via Glenn Reynolds we find that cyberattacks blacked out power in several non-American cities, according to the CIA.

This is the most frightening part: "We do not know who executed these attacks or why, but all involved intrusions through the Internet."

Well of course cyberattacks come through the internet, but the stark revelation that someone using the same internet connection such as you or I are using can turn off the switch in major metropolitan areas is perturbing to say the least.

Um, shouldn't we do something about this?
