The Pentagon’s Cyber Weapons!

The Washinton Post in the USA has reported on the Pentagon’s cyber warfare plans. In this age where wars are fought on many fronts, it is not surprising that the US army has also a deployment strategy for things like computer viruses and cracking attacks.

The list of weapons has not been released, for obvious reasons, but given the way criminals use computers to conduct fraud and malicious attacks it is safe to assume that the US government would be able to wreak some devestating attacks on this front.

You can read the initial Washington Post article at: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/list-of-cyber-weapons-developed-by-pentagon-to-streamline-computer-warfare/2011/05/31/AGSublFH_story.html

It makes me wonder: If I were the US government what cyber warfare weapons would I develop?
