FBI director warns of rapidly expanding cyberterrorism threat

Washington Post, March 9, 2010
FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III has warned that the cyberterrorism threat is "real and . . . rapidly expanding." Terrorists have shown "a clear interest" in pursuing hacking skills, he told security professionals at the RSA Conference in San Francisco. "They will either train their own recruits or hire outsiders, with an eye toward combining physical attacks with cyberattacks," he said.
