A Fire Sale is an all-out cyberwarfare attack that performs a three-stage systematic attack on a nation's computer infrastructure. Hackers called it Fire Sale because "Everything must go". That operation was used by terrorist mastermind Thomas Gabriel and his group of cyber-terrorists. It was a major part of the fourth Die Hard film, Live Free or Die Hard.
