The military is ready to retaliate if the nation is hit by cyber weapons, according to Panetta, as an executive order is being prepared for President Barack Obama’s signature directing U.S. spy agencies to share the latest intelligence about cyber threats with the companies operating electric grids, water plants, railroads and other vital industries to help protect them from electronic attacks.
