Fears grow over jihadist cyber threat

Ukraine seems to be a testing ground for Government sponsored Cyber attacks. Teams of Hackers are forming mercenary forces that are for sale to the highest bidder, it is getting to be a lot like mercenary military forces that ravaged Africa in the 60's through the 80's. It allows for Governments to hire these teams and keep their actions at arms lengths. ISIS is just another client to these guys, and this could become nasty very quickly. Other factors are wanna be Jihadists lone wolf types that are not bomb makers or shooters, they make their mark by creating havoc with Cyber attacks. It could be a long year, IoT or the Internet of Things are making the problem much worse since most of the devices have little or no security.
