  2. This is government stuff, not solo hacker stuff.

    It'll be more efficient and cheaper to just use the standard, well in use methods of EMP weaponization. Great DARPA material for a cold winter's night reading, but otherwise not likely. Forget solo hackers or even decently organized and funded groups, it just isn't worth the huge amount of effort it will take for the kind of data non-government hackers are after.

    As more large corporations and government agencies move to fiber, I wonder how applicable this would be in a real world environment say ~5 years.

    That's interesting.

    So... more shielding, more insulation -- but also different types of detection will be necessary.

    This also has implications for a countries classified networks which have always maintained their integrity primarily by not being connected to the 'outside.'
