Could U.S. be target of Cyber-Terrorism?

The Christian Science Monitor (picked up by USA Today) had an interesting story today about a recent cyber attack on Estonia. The impact cyber-terrorism could have on the United States could create a meltdown for Americans but the U.S. government has not made this a priority. If you think about one big e-commerce site and think about the millions of dollars they could lose for being down an hour, this about the financial impact this could have if we received a nationwide attack. Not even Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) could save the day.
