Departing national cybersecurity chief issues warning

Richard A. Clarke is stepping down as cybersecurity chief, but not without stating that the economy, with its dependence on the Internet, is vulnerable and could be seriously compromised by a cyberattack (he cites the Slammer worm as an example), despite what he calls a reluctance on the administration's and the general public's part to consider cyberattacks to be a real threat.

Here's the great news. Clarke is being replace by "former microsoft security chief Howard Schmidt" (see Slashdot post).

Arrghh! So much for security!

Wow, people make so many comments under Slashdot posts! Does anyone read them all?

I read/skim the comment boards under a particular post that I am interested in. But it must be hard to read them all :)
