All Quiet on the Cyber Front

news alert

London, UK - 17 February 2003, 11:30 GMT - Despite the million plus anti-war demonstrations across the world over the weekend, very limited cyber hacktivism was witnessed. The number of digital attacks was below trend for Saturday the 15th and Sunday the 16th February. It would seem that hackers were protest marching or watching television instead of being in front of their keyboards.

Less than 10 digital attacks were seen this weekend against US and UK online targets in regard to the war with Iraq in comparison to over 50 protest attacks over previous weekends. For the first time, this included some hacktivism which supported regime change in Iraq. The lull in politically motivated cyber attacks is similar to the quiet seen immediately after 9/11.
