Reuters reported The U.S. government warned American private financial services on Thursday of an al Qaeda call for a cyber attack against online stock trading and banking Web sites beginning on Friday, a source said.
Tom Clancy predicted something very close to 9/11 with his Executive Orders. He also created a very interesting series called Net Force, describing a government agency tracking down evil doers using the Internet. I hope such an organization exists, and if it does not, I hope we create one very very soon.The source, a person familiar with the warning, said the Islamic militant group aimed to penetrate and destroy the databases of the U.S. financial sites. The Department of Homeland Security confirmed an alert had been distributed but said there was no reason to believe the threat was credible.
