This whole "cyberattack" thing is totally bogus. Maintain secure systems as well as you can, but if they you are compromised, pick up the pieces,
prosecute, and move along. It doesn't matter who did it, because whoEVER did it, you will be calling their government and having them arrested. If

any changes in daily lives for most people.
These articles are likening "cyberattacks" to the events of 9/11. What the--? Come on! Cyberattacks that would cause 3000 deaths and change city
skylines and the very future of the people of the country?
People who don't understand computers ("Y2K") needn't write articles about them.
