What’s the most dangerous attack someone could perform on the US internet infrastructure?

What would it take to knock out a bunch of ISP’s at once?

What would happen if someone were to cut or damage the underwater internet cables?

Is there federal money going in to protecting the US internet infrastructure?

I’m pretty uninformed on all this, but seems like an interest thought experiment.



1. Serious mistake with BGP or rats that have been taught to eat fibre cable in some of the key back haul routes,

2. There are too many so nothing much. Fishing trawlers do this periodically,

3. Yes.

Not really sure how interesting it is to be honest. The really interesting bit is what the impact would be on our day to day and how we would handle having to use, say cash because SWIFT was down for several weeks.
