ycheng8at September 21,2015 This video indicated the style of wars in the future. I have watched a movie which is called “Die Hard 4 Live free or Die Hard” and the situation in the movie is the same as the point from this video. I thought it’s just a kind of imagine but it seems like the situation can happen in the reality. It’s really scaring me because if the hacker do the same things, the whole world will be in danger. We need to be careful of this situation and develop some methods to protect other future.
hanna88at September 23,2015 I feel like mini cyber wars are already going on. Who knows how much goes on behind the scenes that the general public doesn't even know about. Eventually, this type of war will escalate and it is terrifying to know that we don't have clear definitions and responses outlined in such attacks. Hopefully there are people actively working on these issues.
Faisal817at September 24,2015 Its not that easy to give the clear meaning of CYBERWAR but This particular video describes what's going on around us nowadays. Countries around the globe are using cyberwar instead of using weapons and stuff like that.
fsyed3at September 27,2015 A lot of the questions posed in this video is why I was fascinated by computer forensics in the first place - the fundamental issue is that legislation moves at a snail-pace, and technology evolves rapidly in comparison. The video suggests at the end that the solution is either peace, or more laws - practically, the only way to manage growing technology and cyber warfare abilities is to institute international laws governing it. The issue then, I think, would be enforceability. How would we know *for sure* who was responsible for a given attack, if the attacker masked their digital footprint or in some way was able to successfully frame another country? How, and how many resources would be invested in going after every single cyber criminal? It seems almost implausible. It is a tricky situation, but for certain, the current legislation and measures in place are not sufficient.
jhilldog77at October 06,2015 Interesting video and is probably a bit outdated now as cyber warfare activities have been taking place for some time now with the STUXNET virus a few years back and the more recent OPM data hack as 2 quick examples. With the Internet of Things - where billions of devices are online, this will only provide more and more avenues for exploitation. We need more cyber security professionals and defensive technologies such as the "unhackable kernel" by DARPA to prevent such attacks on our DoD systems and to prevent corporate intellectual property theft.
