The political nature of cyber attacks are making the Internet becoming militarized. A security researcher said on the Internet battlefield, the government and opposition groups will be used as a DDOS attack for political purposes.
The Government seeks to suppress criticism and repression of opponents, they joined in the existing review process distributed denial of service attack (DDOS), said security researcher Jose Nazario at Source Boston Security Showcase session. In DDOS attack, a group accused of being used for malicious purposes botnet computer components, while trying to connect to a victim's Web site. The server can not respond to the flood of network access requests, we had to shut down or inaccessible. Nazario noted that in 2007 Russia launched DDOS attacks against Estonia in 2008 DDOS attack against Georgia, the Georgian government website attacks and military operations in Russia almost simultaneously. DDOS attacks against government interest is because this method is difficult to track promoters and sponsors. When a CNN reporter made contemptuous comments on the Beijing Olympic Games, it has also been the site of a similar DDOS attacks. Nazario said, "These attacks show was supported by the government." China and Russia are discussing cyber warfare program.
