Seattle: Cyber attacks like Duqu, Stuxnet and Flame will inevitably hurt private companies and innocent people as well as governments, warns Microsoft Trustworthy Computing (TwC) vice president Scott Charney.
Charney claimed that the very nature of the internet makes it difficult for governments to contain and reasonably react to cyber attacks.
“It’s hard to tease apart military and civilian […] In the real world it’s easy to separate, but on the internet it’s more difficult. Who’s attacking and why are two things you don’t know online.”
