“I do not know how the third world war will be fought, but I can tell you what they will use in the fourth... rocks.” Albert Einstein said. The nuclear age might have become old school; the regulations have made the nuclear attack become nearly impossible. Phrases, the third world war will be fought by internet. Obviously, cyberspace doesn’t only create the threats to personal privacy, but also the national security. In other hand, military need more people who “use brain” than those people who can fight. Dean Wilson’s “Japanese parliament is under cyber attack” shows that the new threat that is not limited by sea, land or air domain. A hacker can be anywhere and anytime to “attack” a country. As Wilson states “China is once again the primary suspect for these latest attacks on the Japanese parliament, but it is also possible that the China-based server was remotely controlled from a different country. China has been in the spotlight recently for the alleged hacking of US satellites, but it has denied any involvement” (Wilson 1).The hacker can be “irresponsible”, since it is hard to defense and nobody knows who did it; civilian or government? No offensive, Chinese people have the talent to be hackers, they are good at finding loopholes (I believe I inherit the ability as well lol). These nerds don’t need a strong finical background to hack an overseas governmental organization in their base, internet cafe. Cyber-attack becomes the current trend that every single country has to develop it. The article “Iran says Duqu malware under 'control'” shows that malware become the new race between the countries, as it says “The New York Times reported in January that US and Israeli intelligence services collaborated to develop the computer worm to sabotage Iran's efforts to make a nuclear bomb” (physorg.com). Unfortunately, cyberspace is not just a simulation anymore, it has become reality that even Germany has emergency management for cyber-attack “Information warfare is increasingly a subject for the here and now, rather than the cinema and at this year's crisis management exercises, the German government is showing that they take it very seriously” (Hein 1). We should be aware of relying too much on the technology, through malware software could go down anytime. The Ebomb, electromagnetic pulse (sometimes abbreviated EMP) can break any electric device in a wide range. It might be the last resort to attack the cyber attack. Then Albert Einstein’s prediction will become true.
