Propaganda and your PC

There is a warning that on November 11, al Qaeda will attack via computers.
Excerpt: Al Qaeda cyber-terrorists have announced they will launch an “electronic jihad” against online Western interests later this month, according to an Israeli news website.
(The information comes from DEBKAfile which, if you're paying attention, has a pretty bad reputation on the web.) Anyway, when I read the article, I remembered reading about the Storm Worm virus and how nobody really understood it, and anyone who probed the thing would have their systems attacked. My feeling about that was that the Storm Worm has a sort of benign, annoying exterior, but could be sitting there, waiting to turn into something really nasty. And I don't think FOR AN INSTANT that al Qaeda created it. It's more than likely created right here at home as a sort of internet kill switch for when the government needs to shut down the internet. Now, why would they need to shut down the internet on the 11th?

Well, that's my gut feeling and I'm sticking to it.

Martial Law Day? Bomb Iran Day? Your guess as good as mine!
