El Reg badly misguided on cyber-terror threat

The Register's recent, negative review of "Black Ice: The Invisible Threat of Cyber-Terrorism" by Dan Verton drew a good deal of reader mail, including a request by the author to debate the issues raised in their article, and his book.

When Verton invited The Register via e-mail to "do a Q&A to give me the chance to refute the ridiculous claims you make in your review of my book," they accepted. It was agreed that El Reg would ask the questions, and Verton would answer, thereby enjoying the last word. Herewith their exchange, edited very lightly.
