Cyber-warfare Becoming Reality

I personally dislike the "cyber-" prefix; it seems both lazy and overused. Regardless, the notion of Cyber-warfare (politically motivated hacking for spying and sabotage) does seem to be coming to pass before our eyes. In the larger arena, there is the whole "Anonymous" and "Wikileaks" phenomena; more specifically, in recent times we have had malware like Stuxnet, Duku and now Flame. On the hardware side, we have the reportedly porous, Internet-connected SCADA monitoring our critical infrastructure just begging to be hacked, and now we find that our military may be using at least one Chinese-made chip that has a backdoor. Sounds like the rubber is indeed hitting the road...
