Ground control to major bullshit.

We're constantly being informed of the how the next great threat to national security will be cyber warfare. Never mind that so far it seems to be the West leading the way, developing a virus which struck the Iranian nuclear program, just what have "cyber criminals" and potentially state actors thrown at us of late?

William Hague told a conference in Munich how government computers had been infected by a virus last year.

He also detailed an attempt to steal data from a UK defence contractor.

We're all doomed.

It would not be too cynical to suggest that this is all part of a softening up przocess to get us to accept governemnt controls over the internet and communications generally. Create a scare, manufacture an incident and then crack down on freedom. The Britsh government in a nutshell.
