Ehud Barak on Cyber

The news of ‘Flame’ and ‘Olympic Games’ was already out when the Missile Defence Conference was happening at RUSI, where one US official admitted to being ‘worried’ about the vulnerability of missile defences to cyber attack. At the June 6-7th Tel Aviv cyber conference, Ehud Barak was quite firm that cyber is a fifth war fighting domain (along with land, sea, air and space). Here, he was saying, are capabilities to destroy even the most sophisticated weapons systems.
So why is anybody still buying ridiculously expensive systems that will be easily destroyed ‘from a small room’?
