If any of you have not done so, I would highly recommend reading Bruce
Schneier's book 'Beyond Fear'. The particular scenario that is being
described here is what he would call a "movie plot scenario", in that
while it would make a very good movie, it is not at all likely to
happen, and is almost impossible to defend against in any sort of a
reasonable fashion.
