Cyber War

The New York Times reports that just prior to the Russian military incursion into neighboring Georgia, many websites belonging to the government of Georgia came under attack from computers across the world. No one knows who exactly launched these attacks. There’s no hard evidence that the Russian government is responsible and the Georgian sites were defaced or altered in a type of electronic graffiti but were not knocked offline which suggests that it was unofficial mischief rather than a coordinated attack from a hostile government. Still, this incident should remind us that with the internet being such an integral part of our everyday lives, attacks on the internet will also be an integral part of warfare - conflict - terrorism in the 21st Century.
