Wired News: Flaw Could Cripple Entire Net
Oops. Interestingly, the response is more worrying than the threat, I think. Although the article doesn't discuss the implications of someone exploiting the flaw (easy to fix? irrevocable damage?), it would seem it has some very senior people worried about the potential implications. Could this be the first inkling of cyber-terrorism, as opposed to the vandalism, fraud and personal exploitation we've experienced thus far?
