Cyber Warfare Continued

There was an interesting article on cyber warfare in today's New York Times titled, "When Computers Attack," (subscription may be required). It fills in some areas in my earlier post, as well as discusses the testimony of Richard Lawless, deputy undersecretary of defense for Asia about China's cyber warfare capability before the House Armed Services Committee on the 13th of June.

The article also includes a comment by Kevin Poulsen of Wired News about his skepticism of the threat: "â''They unleash their deadly viruses and then they land on the beaches and sweep across our country without resistance because we're rebooting our P.C.'s?" Nice question - creates another useful frame of thought.
