<nettime> USG simulates attack by nettime


OK, and bloggers...

     From Michael Geist's BNA's Internet Law News (ILN) - 2/13/2006:

          US CONCLUDES 'CYBER STORM' EXERCISE TESTING NET DEFENCES
          The US government concluded its Cyber Storm wargame Friday,
          its biggest-ever exercise to test how it would respond to
          devastating attacks over the Internet from
          anti-globalization activists and underground hackers.
          Participants confirmed parts of the worldwide simulation
          also challenged government officials and industry executives
          to respond to deliberate misinformation campaigns and
          activist calls by Internet bloggers.
