Cyberattack FUD

Well said - the radical elements get a lot more bang for their buck with
well placed media stories, than they would ever likely get from a cyber
attack on the Internet. The one point to consider is that there are

used by the Internet. Hence studying the susceptibility of the Internet

Proprietary issues aside there is a lot to be learned and for fairly
good reasons. Micro-biologists study the neural network of the c.elgans
worm not because they give a crap about worm brains but because it gives
insight to a bigger picture. Not the best analogy but ya get the drift.
