"the great hack attack"?

Well it finally happened. The Big One. A coordinated hacking attempted on
over 40 companies in the United States, and an unknown total world-wide.
Industry doomsayers have been predicting this for years. Security
consulting firms have been holding this over our head for years. Security
product firms have been spending more time slinging dirt at each other,
and patting themselves on the back, than dealing with the potential for a
coordinated attack of this caliber. (Secret Clue: these attacks aren't
about lack of *super-high-tech* security products. It's about education;
something the majority of security product vendors give lip service too,
while focusing on hype.)
