This could be a result of the US Department of Justice linking hacking to terrorism through the Surveillance and Anti-terrorism Bill submitted to Congress on 19th September 2001. The UK Government’s Terrorism Act 2000 in which the disruption of key computer systems was classified as terrorism has also played a part in heightening awareness within the hacking community.
