In this topic I want to discus and note the cyber terrorism events from the past and the commen day.
If we can manage a timeline with the cyber terrorism threats we could prevent attacks.
History (from Greek ἱστορία - historia, meaning "inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation") is the study of the humanpast. Scholars who write about history are called historians. It is a field of research which uses a narrative to examine and analyse the sequence of events, and it sometimes attempts to investigate objectively the patterns of cause and effect that determine events.
A couple of events in the past:
1997: The Electronic Disturbance Theater (EDT) starts conducting Web "sit-ins" against various domains in support of the Zapatistas of Mexico. Thousands of protesters point their browser at a site using software that overloads the site with requests for downloads.
1997: Chaos Computer Club creates ActiveX Controls that trick Quicken into removing money from a user's account and transferring it someplace else.
1998: Ethnic Tamil guerrillas swamped Sri Lanken embassies with over 800 e-mails a day for more than two weeks. Some say this was the first known attack by terrorists against a country's IT infrastructure.
1999: Assassins hack into a hospital computer to change the medication of a patient so that he would be given a lethal injection. He was dead within a few hours.
2001: After a Chinese fighter collided with an American surveillance plane in April, Chinese hacker groups spent the next week or so cyber-attacking American targets causing millions of dollars in damage.
