Computer security experts gathered in Hannover, Germany to say what Defense Tech has been reporting for months: that the threat of "cyber-terror" is a load of hooey."If (terrorists) want to attack they will do it with bombs like they always have," said security guru Bruce Schneier.In December, Jim Lewis, with the Center for Strategic and International Studies, called cyber-strikes "weapons of mass annoyance."Schneier added, "Breaking pager networks and stopping e-mail is not an act of terror."Nevertheless, such attacks have generated a seemingly endless stream of media and government warnings. Schneier blames the Bush Administration for this."The hype is coming from the U.S. government and I don't know why," he said.
