Anti-Japanese Hostilities Move to the Internet
By Anthony Faiola,

TOKYO -- In the fortified control room of a major Internet security firm, a beleaguered team of experts slouched in front of glowing computer screens, tracking overseas hackers through billions of lines of data. They glanced up periodically at an electronic world map on the wall where, every few seconds, red lines lit up, revealing a new cyber-war aimed at Tokyo.

Over the past several months, a series of attacks believed to have originated in China and South Korea have hit dozens of key public and private Web sites hosted in Japan. Authorities describe it as the heaviest assault ever perpetrated on the nation's computer systems from overseas.

Japanese are more than capable of fighting back.

The whole thing seems a bit childish to me.

I think this is kind of spooky.

Couldn't a country just recruit a bunch of computer geeks and fly them to various sites around the world, get them hooked up to the internet and start attacking any country's military, financial, transportation and communication systems? Just to be a stinker.

Even if you can't do much damage, you can make it very expensive just to defend yourself.
