Sure, you’ve got the hijinks of groups like Anonymous, who seem to have little trouble breaking into pretty much any website, even the CIA’s. But that’s just code cracking, finding a back door into a website, and maybe downloading some security contractor’s email inbox. There’s a whole other tier of hackers, serious thieves, who can not only find their way through a maze of code, but can actually tap into the very wires that carry that code from place to place. It’s a serious threat, and not even the most sophisticated fiber optic networks were safe. Not until now anyways."
