One of my favorite films is Live free or Die Hard. I like all the films in the series though.
If this happens it sounds like a movie script, worse case scenario. We won't have a John McClain or Jack Bauer to

Shawn Henry, a veteran of the cyber security division in the FBI, has stated that a cyber-attack is “very, very likely” to occur soon. Brennan said that an executive order would be a “good vehicle” to ensure government agencies are empowered to take action “to make sure the nation is protected.”
Stewart Baker, former senior official for the DHS and cyber security expert at the law firm Stepoe and Johnson remarked: “The president can say we can’t wait, and I’m going to do what Congress can’t and protect the American people from cyber-attacks” and “in an election year, that sounds like a pretty promising approach.”
