Can you imagine one day all things on the electrical grid just coming to a screeching halt?? No lights, no cell phones, No Grocery stores, thats not even touching on the whole extent of such an attack. This threat has grown in such a way that now it has become headline news. The FAA has stated: "unless effective action is taken quickly it is likeyly to be a matter of when not if...." Remember that show 'DARK ANGEL' that got canceled with Jessica Alba, she was a bio engineered super soldier the government created--after her escape terrorist used an electro-magnetic pulse to cripple computers and the US communication's systems. It wouldn't take much to take California out, heck, their power is always out, lol

If that really happens, it will be a real bummer totally. No internet access, no TV, nothing. I like Dark Angel and Jessica Alba is so beautiful. There are a couple of movies like The Mist whereby the area has been attacked by so called aliens or the fog and strange creatures are lurking. Everyone is stuck at the grocery store. I know that is somewhat a total different situation but very scary come to think of it.

I read a book called The FOG when I was twelve but I do not know if the movie is based on the book or not. I did not see the Fog because I kind of lost faith in scary movies after the Ring and the saw came around they just got too outlandish to me, especially how the characters acted. I really love zombie movies even though they scare the heck out of me!

Zombie movies truly scare me big time too, LOL. I agree The Ring was kind of 'off', ha! There's this latest movie that I've heard rating's pretty good; Drag me to Hell is the title. About this sort of nomadic woman or gypsy putting a curse on this lady. Awesome, must go catch it once it's released in my country.

It's true that security is an important issue but such issue should be tackled with vigilance not paranoia. Cyberspace, like any new frontier holds both opportunities and threats. As long as everyone remains vigilant about potential threats, everyone should be fine. Living in paranoia is not living at all. Too much doom and gloom only serves to make everyone more irritable and agitated making the cyberworld and the real world much worse than they already are. Have a good one.

Yeah you are probably right security is an important issue rigth at the moment. I too think that suddenly we might face an attack similar to this and then all hell will break loose. This can send us back to the dark ages and there isn't much being done at the moment. If it is done then I don't know about it.

well, even though Obama said censorship will not take away Citizen's rights I think that line has already been crossed once with the wire tapping of the previous administration. Government run censorship is just too wide and complicated to really be able to know the difference.

I can imagine it. I'm a blogger for the alternative news movement, every once and awhile discussions or national thought about national security proposes various ways that could happen. Electromagnetic pulse, severe solar flares, terrorist hackers/regular criminal hackers, government contingency plan/conspiracy, accidental evolution of a virus or malfunction of outdated technology, or in case of massive civil changes. It's not a hard place to get to, but the methods could range from anything.

Yeah you right Revella... I also realize that: "More easier the usage of hi tech equipment, wider security threat exposed whatsoever" That statement is suck, but have we ever wonder why those big company never test it before release their product to public? Why the let we (customer) suffer the pain?
