We are a society that has become RELIANT on our PC's and Internet access for MANY EVERY DAY tasks. This article from WIRED magazine is just one example to prove that.

THE UNTOLD STORY OF NOTPETYA, THE MOST DEVASTATING CYBERATTACK IN HISTORY
Crippled ports. Paralyzed corporations. Frozen government agencies. How a single piece of code crashed the world.
