A pack of US Government agencies, along with a couple of states, performed a mock attack to test their internet security readiness.
Some of the critical points of contact – power grids, financial systems, and…..bloggers. The government wants to make sure the bloggers can’t spread misinformation. Hmm. That portion of the exercise is rumored to have included testing a system to close comments on major media’s blogs when the miscreants call those authors on the carpet. But again, that is just rumor.
