Estonia Cyberattack Lessons

An analysis of last month's attack on Estonia's information infrastructure and how it might affect US systems is provided in ComputerWorld.

Of particular interest is the discussion on how difficult it is to identify the true source of attacks and how attacks on government systems can easily spill over to civilian systems. This is a not-to-subtle point that many security talking-heads miss when they promote the idea of "cyber counter-attacks".

Could U.S. be at risk for cyberwarfare?
