A battle of the bit wits, Cyber wars!

A battle of the bit wits, Cyber wars!
Written by Daniel
Thursday, 03 August 2006
The largest cyberwar to date is quietly brewing, and the participants are not necessarily limited to the Middle East


The Internet is a powerful tool that is once again being used as a propaganda machine by groups not happy with Israel's invasion of Lebanon, and vice versa. A number of US government web sites have been targeted by cracking groups. The latest victim has been NASA who was attacked by a Chilean group of crackers. With the seriousness of the situation in the Middle East escalating, security experts expect further attacks to be made on Israeli and American computer servers.

So far, NASA, University of California, Berkeley, various government web sites and Microsoft have been targeted. Unfortunately, the fifty or so machines publically compromised last week are just the tip of the iceberg. These systems are just peripheral to the amount of Israeli and Arabic computers under attack, but both sides are doing their best to conceal the extent of the attacks.
