Sophos Security


Some of the key findings of the survey indicate a relaxed attitude to state-sponsored cybercrime:



"It's perhaps surprising that so many people seem to think that using the internet as a tool for spying, or even as a weapon, is acceptable practice," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos. "After all, by giving the green light to these kind of activities you'd also have to expect to be on the receiving end too. Maybe yours will be the next company probed by an overseas power?"


I'm sure its no suprise that Governments would do this, though a little suprising so many people condone it. It almost seems like a hint at a flase flag on U.S. sites.

What do you all think?

I don't know what a flase flag is, but it's obvious most people don't condone it and it's misrepresenting the statistics to say that people that condone it only during wartime, condone it. That's a pretty big caveat. If you factor in that most countries are not at war with other countries so that proviso is not currently applicable, you have to say the majority of people currently don't condone it.

ok, I note that, you are correct. I was wondering how to word it.
A false flag is when someone does something, and pretends to be someone else. Example, I can see the U.S. crippling some websites, and blaming it on China.

I understand it says war time, but recently, we are always at war. I just think they would take this knowledge and use it to their benefit.
