An anonymous reader writes “The inability to deflect even a simulated cyber attack or mitigate its effects shown in the exercise that took place some six days ago at Washington’s Mandarin Oriental Hotel doesn’t bode well for the US. Mike McConnell, the former Director of National Intelligence, said to the US Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee yesterday that if the US got involved in a cyber war at this moment, they would surely lose. ‘We’re the most vulnerable. We’re the most connected. We have the most to lose,’ he stated. Three years ago, McConnell referred to cybersecurity as the ‘soft underbelly of this country’ and it’s clear that he thinks things haven’t changed much since then.”
