Es scheint, dass kein internationaler Konflikt heutzutage mehr ohne einen begleitenden „Cyberkrieg“ daherkommt. Aber ist das wirklich so? Marcus Sachs vom SANS Internet Storm Center zweifelt das Zusammenspiel an.
In the case of Georgia I think that a new pattern is emerging:
1. Because of the large number of bots, botnets, and general level of criminal behavior on the Internet, a level of „background noise“ is always present in every corner of cyberspace, including small countries like Georgia
2. When the real-world event happens and the media starts looking for activity […] they immediately find it because of the „background noise“ (this is like turning on the lights in the kitchen and seeing hundreds of cockroaches – you can acknowledge that you’ve got a roach problem and kill them or you can turn off the lights and PRESTO! they magically all go away, therefore no more roach problem)
