    We see it more and more. Anonymous going after biz's and govs. Do you think they could have crashed United Computers because right now is when all the big wigs are flying into TIA for the RNC? Not like I know but do you think its possible?

    Cyberattacks are always possible.

    Which computers came under attack? Ticketing?

    Will anonymous attack during the DNC as well or is Warren Buffet immune?

    All from what I read, people all over the world were twittering from the tarmac.

    That leaves alot to consider.

    If they were "waiting" to taxi to the runway, I don't think UA's computers are involved. That sounds more like the function of the FAA.

    If I'm not mistaken, a power failure shut down DFW recently, as well as the storm that dropped about 4 inches of rain in the area. When a major hub gets shut down, it backs them up everywhere.

    I dunno what it was but UA's website, booking, and their whole network went down. All UA planes worldwide were grounded on tarmac?(May be precaution) cancelled or delayed.
