Long time ago yes, but no longer. Look with the key phrase
"electromagnetic emanation". There are also techniques to
disrupt the proper functioning of a computer.

Including military attack I presume. Interrupting communications has
been done. I remember such during the raid on Waco. I knew so
because at the time I was doing work with a spectrum analyzer not too
far away that produced a rather clear picture of the efforts. General
EMP usages might cause general indignation in a specific area. But the
stupidity of the Waco misadventure shows that when you have a hammer,
all problems can look like nails.
