‘AGE OF DIGITAL TERRORISM’ IS COMING, IMPACT MAY BE AS DANGEROUS AS WMDS – MOSCOW

Terrorist groups exploit the internet for hacking and global outreach, the impact of which could soon become no less dangerous than that of weapons of mass destruction, a senior Russian security official warned.

The rapid development of technology allows terrorists to “even more actively” use the internet for “recruitment, attracting funds, hacking and other cybercrimes,” the deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council, Yury Kokov, said at a security-themed event in the city of Ufa in central Russia.

The official said the internet has become the “main mechanism” for various extremists to “control their scattered forces and resources,” while there are currently around 30,000 “extremist and terrorist websites” online.

This allows us to conclude that an age of technological and digital terrorism is approaching. In terms of consequences, [this type of terrorism] may be comparable to the weapons of mass destruction in the nearest future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Deputy Secretary Kokov, with all due respect, this digiterror is already here; have you not seen the chaos in the US city of Baltimore, because its computers got hacked with ransomware?!?

Hackers have been holding the city of Baltimore’s computers hostage for 2 weeks:
A ransomware attack means Baltimore citizens can’t pay their water bills or parking tickets.

To the best of my understanding, this issue has not yet been resolved.

And there is another reason these terrorists are training "frogmen"; that is to destroy fiber optic cables, which connects countries for communication purposes.
