Threats from everywhere in 'cyber storm'

Perhaps its just me but it doesn't sound like this went exactly as planned.
TESTING OUR DEFENSES: In the middle of the biggest-ever "Cyber Storm" war game to test the nation's hacker defenses, someone quietly targeted the very computers used to conduct the exercise.

THE CULPRIT [sic]? The players themselves, the same government and corporate experts responsible for detecting and fending off attacks against vital computer systems, according to files obtained by The Associated Press.

REALITY GAME: The $3 million war game simulated what the U.S. describes as plausible attacks against the technology industry, transportation lines and energy utilities by anti-globalization hackers.
