Crackers Cause Pentagon to Put Computers Offline

Crackers Cause Pentagon to Put Computers Offline – Anarchysoft writes “As many as 1500 Pentagon computers were brought offline on Wednesday in response to a cyber attack.

I’m a very low-tech person.'” Read more of this story at Slashdot. [Slasdot]

To say that the 6,000 attendees were skeptical of said plan would be an understatement given a year of fiscal losses, job cuts, PS3 under-performance (with an eventual Kutaragi dismissal), and an embarrassing and dangerous recall of some 10 million batteries among other missteps.
