War has changed its face. When centuries ago we fought with swords, and later with gunpowder, now we fight in darkened rooms with computers before us. What has happened?

 

Computers happened.

 

The computer has changed our everyday lives. Our food, our shelter, our health system, and our money have all centered around computerization. Without computers, we would all go back to the Stone Age. And with that threat, of course, comes the threat of war among those who know how to use computers themselves.

 

What is Cyberwarfare?

 

In this article we got to interview someone who had preferred to be called anonymously, and for now we would be calling him “Jack.” Jack has spent nearly most of his life studying code and the inner workings of network systems that he has found his way around many of simple systems that we have today.

 

“When back then we would say “I can’t do this,” today we would say “Why not?” and then we go about it,” he says, with a smirk.

 

According to Jack, Cyberwarfare is, simply put, using the power of computers to make war between two factions, may they be countries, organizations, or as small as individuals. Jack says, “It’s really a generalized term. Everyone can be part of it.”

 

How do you stop Cyberwarfare?

 

Cyberwarfare is just like any other kind of war. According to Jack, “Just as Fire does not fix fire, cyberwar ain’t fixing cyberwar.” He says we have to realize that peace is the real way to victory here. He notes that things such as updates, patches, and software improvements all help to stop cyberwarfare, and offensively affirming the opposing team would lead to nothing. Jack says, “What, you think they’d just shut up if you keep hitting them back?”

 

In the end, Cyberwarfare is just like any other warfare. Although the terms of peace are different (such as updates and patches, offensive means still do not cure the fire and angst of war. We cannot shake hands with closed fists, and in the end, with more war, there is only more casualties.
