The other day, the computers at United Airline crashed.  Trading on Wall Street stopped because of a computer crash,  The Wall Street Journal also had a glitch.

Really?  All three suffered “glitches” on the exact same day?

I dunno.  As George Norry and Nick Rowland say, I don’t believe in coincidence.  Especially when it comes to cyber security.

Just for fun, I looked up the NORSE ATTACK MAP web site that tracks world-wide computer hacks as they are happening.  It is scary as hell.


It shows counter-attacks as well.  Sometimes, the map looks like a scene out of a horror movie.  A flick like DR. STRANGELOVE OR: HOW I LEARNED TO STOP WORRYING AND LOVE THE BOMB.

The last couple of days, ST. Louis has been getting hundreds and hundreds of hits.

It looks like laser tag, but it is not a game!

Don’t go to this web site before bedtime if you want to sleep.

What next?
