The US assistant attorney general warns “You need to prepare” because Islamist extremists are “drawing closer to launching lethal cyber jihad attacks on the US.

The FBI and department of Homeland Security are also in on the warning.

James Comey, the FBI director, last year warned about terrorists using “destructive malware” while a Homeland Security department official said in October that Isis had launched unsuccessful attacks on the electricity grid.
