与世界其他大部分国家和地区一样,美国的国家安全工作也越来越多地转移至互联网上。

新一代对美国国家安全的威胁可能是网络攻击,而可能出现的最糟糕情况是一场导致美国全境的互联网完全断网的攻击。

美国全境可能在24小时或更长时间里失去互联网连接看起来是一种离奇的想法,不过俄罗斯正在为类似的情况作准备。

互联网瘫痪对美国经济有多大影响?

根据Access Now的数据,仅在过去一年时间里实际上发生了196次大规模断网影响了25个国家。

美国东海岸的居民可能对发生在2016年10月21日上午的一次大规模分布式拒绝服务攻击(DDoS)仍有印象,该次攻击导致美国东海岸大部分地区的互联网瘫痪了数小时。

仅用了三个人就创建了2016年攻击中使用的代码,那次攻击也让人如梦初醒般意识到美国的互联网是多么脆弱。

对于华尔街和美国经济而言,互联网已经成为它们的命脉,互联网每瘫痪一秒钟都将让公司和投资者们损失大笔金钱。

据Statista的数据,持续24小时的美国全境断网将给美国经济造成72.9亿美元损失。

同样的24小时断网会给英国经济带来22.6亿美元损失,会给俄罗斯经济带来3.1亿美元损失。

Benzinga结论

对于那些试图危害美国的人来说,网络攻击相比传统军事攻击的风险与回报更具吸引力。

如果一场网络攻击成功导致美国全境互联网更长时间的瘫痪,则投资者预计会遭遇金融市场的剧烈波动。
