Hacktivism and Hacktivist. Sounds great!
George Hulme thinks web defacement and denial-of-service isn’t classified as cyber war, but these actions are forms of demonstration in the cyber world like people who demonstrate in front of US Ambassador to condemn Israel’s attack in Gaza, Palestina. They just want to protest what they think isn’t right in another way, not to yell or to fight against the police, but “protest” in the internet like deface or launch an attack.
Maybe in the future, we’ll see when young people demonstrate in front of DPR (Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat), they’ll launch several attacks to government’s websites too. Deface a web and tell the representatives that people don’t trust. Perhaps…
What you think? Do you agree if web defacement and denial-of-service are forms of demonstration? Or you don’t?
