SeattleTimes: "In truth, most of us don't fully understand cyberterrorism. Unlike computer viruses, worms and other
major nuisances we've experienced on the Internet, cyberterrorism can inflict far greater pain.

Cyberterrorism, which involves attacks on computer-dependent systems, is premeditated, politically
motivated and often coordinated. It can cause severe economic hardship, widespread loss of
electricity and possibly physical and psychological suffering. Few, if any, attacks have met the
criteria for cyberterrorism, so far."
