Threat by anonymous goes viral. “World’s nuclear power plants in danger” say experts

Following a statement by the organization of Hackers Anonymous, which vowed to disrupt the West’s main energy production mechanisms, panic is spreading across nuclear energy dependent countries. Still lacking international regulation and enforced high security standards, experts believe this sector to be the most vulnerable potential target of any cybernetic attack.
