Cyber threats to US business grow more dangerous | Reuters.com: "WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Attacks on U.S. computer networks could escalate from mere inconveniences to disasters that ruin companies or even kill people, according to the head of a cyber-security unit working with the U.S. government." (One of the interesting things about this story is that the director of the Cyber Consequences Unit is named Scott Borg)
"In one hair-raising scenario, Borg describes how attackers might change specifications at an automobile plant and cause a car to 'burst into flames after it had been driven for certain weeks or months.'
"Another potential attack could involve infiltrating hospitals or pharmacies to change medical data such as dosages or treatment schedules."
