While the prospect of damaging infrastructure through computer worms is now a real threat, IBM accumulates a small arsenal of technologies to fight the inevitable battle to protect our smarter, but more fragile, planet.

It's quite common for geeks to be science fiction fans, and I don't know if I'm a geek, but I do like a good sci-fi movie. Thus, I can't wait until tonight to go see Battle: Los Angeles, which opens today and tells the story of a Marine platoon's efforts to repel an alien invasion of the city of angels. Science fiction battles, like actual war, are glorified in the abstract, but you wouldn't want to be there if it were happening in real life. Thus it is with grave concern that I read about the cyber attacks on Iranian nuclear facilities using what is believed to be the Stuxnet worm.
