I was startled to know of the recent cyber attacks that paralyzed many of the federal sites and other sites of other government agencies of US and South Korea, while I was browsing on top news sites earlier today.
This event reminds me of the Sept. 11, 2001 attack. The US, with all it's might and glory, is also susceptible and vulnerable to attacks. There's really no such thing as "safe" place, for both virtual and real worlds.
I'd better be careful on my online transactions. I've got to observe some security measures to avoid intrusion into my computer.
