That sounds really weird, can you explain it a little better? I'm in courses that deal with computer forensics and cybercrime, and we've covered cyber terrorism. I just don't really understand what you're asking.

What im meaning is do you believe that cyber terrorism is becoming the new more direct form of terrorisim, i feel as if the increase in cyber terrorism is begining to allow people target people much easier.

Perhaps the Stuxnet worm is an example of cyber-terrorist tools. It (and similar) has the capability to knock out essential services.

It has been theorised that Stuxnet was designed to prevent Iran from completing their nuclear power program (and their potential to use it for weapons production).

I have a related thread here:

www.abovetopsecret.com...

entitled: "Site Lists Data Security Being Breached On a Regular Basis in the U S - Shocking!"

which you might find interesting. I would think it would be an excellent job field for someone interested
in same to pursue, and probablly make a very good living at it (as a cybercop that is).....


Data on the term "cyberterrorism" here:

en.wikipedia.org...
