Ever heard of Stuxnet?

Driving into work this morning and listening to NPR when a piece about "cyberwar" came on. I was amazed to hear the President's chief adviser on cybersecurity say that there is no such thing as cyberwarfare.


Was he not paying attention when Russia attempted to shut down Georgia's infrastructure prior to invading. That was a cyber attack. Or a more recent example - Stuxnet. That is nothing but a weaponized computer virus.

Sometimes life just hands you perfect examples of the Peter principle.
