The recent attack on Sony also indicates that North Korea has been secretly planning to engage in the same since its actions were not noticed until it was successful. The FBI only came in to investigate the matter after the destruction had been done and Sony had already pulled the comedy. I am very fearful of a major cyber-attack. This means that companies such as Sony will have to suspend all electronic operations until those responsible are recognized and punished. Sometimes this takes a very long time.
