Hacktivism's Pit Fall

Cyberterrorists are predicted to attack more multinational corporations in lieu of governments. Defacing web pages, DOS attacks, and the like are the “methods they are using … in their infancy”. This article predicts more attacks from animal rights activists and other fringe groups. But the real question is how effective can these attacks be? Defacing a web page is mostly harmless right now. But I guess if cyberterrorists could make the dot-com stock market plummet… oh wait, they don’t have to.
