Anti-virus pioneer John McAfee believes that there is no doubt hackers can easily get into and destroy power and water stations across the country -- whether it be on the ground or through cyberspace. 

In this video, McAfee tells a tale of how two of his friends broke into a power plant by disguising themselves as groundskeepers. And digital hackers have it even easier, he says. 

"It's a piece of cake, given the backdoors and holes in the software," he says.
