Community Paper Presentation #3

Leann Daddario & Chris


Community Question

  • Are computer hacks legitimate political activities?

  • Is it a good way to express dislike or anger over the actions of a politician or government agency, or is it just garden variety vandalism, the equivalent of spray painting something on the wall of a public building?

  • Is it civil disobedience to take down a site and is it effective?


IT attacks cost corporations and governments cost millions of dollars.

  • Terrorists are attacking under the name of:

    • politics

    • religion

    • Anti corporate beliefs


The Internet is used for business

  • Cyber-terrorism only serves to increase public skepticism and caution no matter what the alleged reasoning of the terrorist may be.

    • Vital information is being shared

      • Social security numbers

      • Credit card numbers

      • Home addresses

      • Bank account numbers


Hacking can be seen as a relatively safe method of terrorism

  • Air Tran/ValuJet hacking example

    • Air Tran lost millions because of the crash

    • Hacking the website further debilitated reconstruction

    • Cyber terrorism is harmful but preferable to physical attacks


Comparing Hacking Incidents

  • RSA Security, Library of Congress and the Air Force were all hacked into

    • Hacked our of personal vendetta or mere vandal humor

    • Hacking is the equivalent to a random act of vandalism

      • Expensive to prevent and repair

      • These costs are passed onto the consumer or taxpayer


Internet Terrorism is effective for protest, retaliation and destruction, but serves no cause

  • Hurts consumers in the long run

  • Hard to prevent

  • Will slow down with the advent of safer technology
