CyberWar Threat on PBS TV. A review.

CyberWar Threat on PBS TV.  A review.

My review of a TV program from last year. You should watch it if you haven't already.  Really.   :)

It was Aired October 14, 2015 on PBS in the USA.
Public Broadcasting System began a set of reports about Cyder Warfare. The information is still valid and more urgent than  before.

Here is the main link:

Program Description.
The global cyberwar is heating up and the stakes are no longer limited to the virtual world of computers. Now, thanks in part to secret documents released by Edward Snowden, the true scale of the National Security Agency's scope and power is coming to light. Besides spending billions of dollars to ingest and analyze the worlds' electronic communications.

As internet connections multiply so do points of attack and risks to national security. Now it is possible, even likely, a group of antagonists could take over thousands of personal computers and start attacks to target and weaken the infrastructural and the economy of the USA.

The presentation gets your attention as it shows what happens
when a big accident happens. Then it explains what could  happen sin an accidental mishap could also come by a deliberate plan of attack using only digital intrusion.

I had heard about this sort of thing, but the PBS program drives the point home. It can really happen.  So often PBS is so very boring. But not with this program. It is factual and shocking at the same time. So I recommend you watch when you have a quite moment and are in a good mood. Do not watch this if you have a bit of depression.  Watch it with a good friend and a bowl of popcorn. It will hold your attention and reeducate you to what the near future might bring.

The presentation is no speculation nor conjecture.  It is hard core fact.  You have to watch it. 

Some additional information was added after the first broadcast.

Saw this when it came out. Looked online at the time and found this website that was interesting. Looks like WarGames movie with nukes but its traffic thats flagged as attacks, but only some of all traffic a sample of all. http://map.norsecorp.com/#/

The last time Blizzard entertainment was targeted with a DDoS attack it was lit up pretty well.
