 Definition Terrorist attacks on resources on computer and telecommunications networks, or use of Internet and other cyberspace to support terrorist operations. [d] [e]

Because cyber terrorism has so many variations to its definitions, it is best if the prominent ones are posted in chronological order in addition to what has been posted.

References, wikified

Your references aren't wikified at all. This makes it hard to cite your sources elsewhere on the wiki, and makes your article less consistent with other articles. See the PHP article for a perfect example of a good reference section. I can help with "wikifying" your references, if you like --Eric M Gearhart 15:33, 6 April 2007 (CDT)


I've never seen cyberterrorism written as "Cyber Terrorism" rather than "cyberterrorism". Perhaps someone should move it. --Tom Morris 22:45, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Very preliminary cleanup

Needs much work. I took out both the general network security aspects, which really were not adding definition, and the assertion that Gibson defined cyberspace. At the moment, I don't have time to start getting references, but CERT at Carnegie Mellon would be a good place. If I have the chance, I'll check with a colleague at the UN for the best global references. Howard C. Berkowitz 23:09, 31 January 2009 (UTC)
