Cyber terrorism

Cyber terrorism summarizes all terrorist acts which are conducted by means of internet technology. The term is intensively discussed since the boundaries between unpolitical criminal acts, ideologically motivated actions and governmentally supported (secret) warfare are rather diluted.
