Insurgent Hackers - UPDATED

So insurgents in Iraq and Afghanistan can hack into our drone video feeds...not because they're all that technologically savvy, but because they can buy a program off the Internet for the bargain price of $29.95.

Which brings up the question, if insurgents can do that, what the hell can the North Koreans, Iranians, Russians, and Chinese do with their computer hackers? Do we even know what they're doing now? And can we even stop them if we do?

For all our superiority on the physical battlefield, I fear we're losing battles we don't even know we're having on the digital battlefield.

UPDATE: Speak of the devil. Pro-regime Iranians hacked Twitter and opposition websites.
