To a professional cynic such as I, with a 40-year background in computers, this outage appears ‘suspicious’. Yes, it could have just been excessive load given the volume of folks arriving back home after the holidays. But, we probably have seen busier days.

Tensions on the ‘Cyber Cold War’ are extremely high and heated.

Taking down customs would have been a nice coup.

I dread that we will see escalating cyber-wars that will cripple the Internet and cause huge disruptions.

I hope this was not a Russian hack. But we need to be really vigilant. I don’t want the Internet crippled. {SMILE}
