Lost in the cyber threat hyperbole

Protecting critical infrastructure systems against hackers is a serious job but are doom and gloom terms like 'digital Pearl Harbor' really necessary?

Can hackers really cause as much bloodshed as 353 Imperial Japanese Navy fighters, bombers and torpedo planes launched from six aircraft carriers? Can hackers really kill 2,402 US citizens, leave 1,282 wounded, lose 65 of their own attackers in the process, and plunge the United States into a World War?

Heaven only knows. Maybe they can. The lack of security around Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems is scary.
