Re: Should the industry be expecting a hacker response to election results?

Why if *Bush* gets back? And no, we don't really need to know the answer. We have enough political nonsense going on already, just something to ponder.

Btw: no.

Are security firms ready for a major internet incident?

Are the major dot-coms got staff working late incase something occurs?

Is this realistic or is my drama filled imagination getting the better of me?

Personally i'm expecting something, i don't know if it comes in the
way of a denial of service of some description or a virus outbreak, or
perhaps a high profile defacement on one of the major dot-coms.

I think if hackers were holding off an exploit or vulnerability for a
rainy day or day of high political importance, then the U.S election
result if it swings in the direction of bush would be the prime time
to use it.
