I admit I have written about hacking like the Sony site and Amazon’s web services with mild interest.  It wasn’t funny but neither was it frightening.  Today’s news may be pushing that boundary.  Hackers are saying they took down the CIA website and sure enough I get a “page cannot be displayed” error when I tried it.

More on this story.

OK, this is more serious.  I suspect we will start seeing some changes in network security.  Perhaps its time- or rather past time, much like building a great barn door after the horses have long gone.
