ABSTRACT
The article reports on the launch by Russian citizens and their sympathizers of a coordinated cyber warfare offensive strategy that disabled Georgian Web sites. A report issued by the U.S. Cyber-Consequences Unit found that the malign modifications of publicly available commercial software designed for administrators of computer networks were used by the cyber attackers. The report concludes that the attackers have been instructed by some central controllers to limit the damage they inflicted. It also offered three recommendations to counter cyber wars.
