A 'cyber war threat' against Britain is the latest bullshit spouted by some Minister or other.
Not content with controlling the Main Stream Media, it seems they want to get their grubby paws on the interweb too. And to control it, which means controlling us.
Former 'naughty boys' are to be recruited by GCHQ as they are the experts, apparently,
Lord West said Britain was also developing the capability to strike back against hackers by recruiting former hackers at GCHQ.
"It would be silly to say that we don't have any capability to do offensive work from Cheltenham," he said.
GCHQ had not employed any "ultra, ultra criminals" he added, but he said they needed the expertise of former "naughty boys.”
"You need youngsters who are deep into this stuff," he said. "If they have been slightly naughty boys, very often they really enjoy stopping other naughty boys."
Lord West said the terrorists' capability to launch attacks was something he believed will develop in future.
"We know terrorists use the internet for radicalisation and things like that at the moment, but there is a fear they will move down that path (of cyber attacks).
"As their ability to use the web and the net grows, there will be more opportunity for these attacks."
They never tire of trying to scare/mislead us all, do they.
