Former ABC News anchor has a new book out warning readers about the threat of a cyber attack on our power grid:

We are accustomed to cyber-attacks that result in grand larceny. We are accustomed to cyber-attacks that amount to huge vacuuming of intelligence information. 

What we have never had is a cyber-attack that amounts to a weapon of mass destruction. And my point is that, if someone succeeds in taking down one of our power grids — and the Russians and the Chinese can do it and maybe the Iranians and the North Koreans — it would be devastating. (Ted Koppel via PBS News Hour)

This seemed like a good topic for a poll.

The poll will close at 8pm tonight, I’ll discuss my thoughts and the results on Wednesday.

    How I vote depends on how you define “attack” – attempted or successful? Attempted is a given, success is up for debate . . .
