The Pentagon has officially warned the rest of the world that they will take real action against cyber attacks on mission critical targets in the U.S. This comes after an infiltration was reported at Lockhead Martin, a major military defense contractor for the U.S. and recent attacks on Iran's nuclear power plant. A military official had this to say "If you shut down our power grid, maybe we will put a missile down one of your smokestacks."

This will undoubtedly be the topic of heated debated for some time to come. The U.S. will not only be tasked with conclusively proving a foreign cyber attack has occurred but prove that a government or organization was behind it. This will not be an easy feat, especially since the most recent wave of cyber attacks against Visa, Amazon and Sony have been collaborative efforts of hackers across dozens of countries.

We will have to wait to see if this is a fear tactic to discourage terroristic activity or this is the new "biggest" threat to homeland security.
