Bad News: Al Qaeda Plots 'Devastating' Cyber Attack; Good News: Plans to Invade Facebook

Always look for the silver lining. Now, if only they could do something about those annoying spammers on Twitter.
AL QAEDA is plotting a devastating "cyber jihad" against Britain and the West, The Sun reported today.

Terrorists even tried to "invade" Facebook in their campaign of electronic warfare.

The extremists launched crack units to target key computer systems, and Google Earth and Street View were also being used to help plan atrocities.

The warnings came as UK home secretary Theresa May unveiled the government's new counterterrorism strategy.

Senior security officials said that cyber terrorism would become an ever-growing threat. One source said, "At the moment, incidents are few and far between - but it's a taste of things to come."
