American Blackout – Pop Quiz

AmericanBlackout_10

On October 27, NatGeo will air a new movie called American Blackout!  I have seen a screener and all I have to say is WOW!  I will be posting a review soon, but to have something to hold you over, here is a little pop-quiz provided by NatGeo.

POP QUIZ:

IS THIS CYBER-ATTACK REAL OR A MOVIE PLOTLINE?

 

Once the domain of science fiction and action films, cyberattacks have become a regular presence in newspaper headlines and intelligence reports, turning what was once unfathomable into an all-too-real possibility, blurring the lines between fact and fiction. Take the quiz below to see if you know the difference between a real cyberattack and a movie plotline.

REAL OR A MOVIE?

1) Programmers hack into the American power grid, destroying a power station generator.

2) A hacker gains remote access to a military supercomputer, briefly convincing government officials that the Soviet Union has launched a nuclear attack on the U.S.

3) Spam wars reach epic proportions as an attack on an anti-spam regulatory group by a Web host slows down Internet speeds around the world.

4) A Department of Defense employee is dismissed for hacking into the system to prove the vulnerability of America’s infrastructure to a cyberattack. Disgruntled, he hacks into the transportation grid, causing widespread chaos, before attempting to take down the electrical grid.

5) American and Israeli officials launch a computer worm that contaminates Iranian uranium enrichment by burning out centrifuge motors.

Answers are below!
