Internet Terror Threat!

In BBC, Microsoft, Technology, War on Terror on October 20, 2010 at 7:40 pm

So its been plastered all over the news that the UK will be hit by hackers in a new terror threat.  On Radio 2 yesterday they were discussing if this was possible and its effect on the UK and its banking and energy systems.

I think we are already being terrorised by Microsoft!  They sell and promote software that can be hacked and always needs updating.  All we need is another virus like the one we had a few years ago.  That virus restarted thousands of computers across the world anytime they connected to the internet!

Now imagine that virus but a lot more powerful.  Maybe with the capability to destroy the boot sector of a pc then the world’s computer systems could be in deep trouble!  Just think there could be a Microsoft vuneriability out there already just waiting to be exploited.

Just a thought!
