    • Security mogul EugeneKaspersky has declared cyberwarfare as "the internetsgreatest threat."Kaspersky believes that cyberwarfare has leaped over threatssuch as cyber crime and privacyissues to become the mostdangerous issue facing the web.He spoke at the Australian Cebitconvention about the potentialdamage of cyber super weaponsand the future of internetsecurity.
    • "Cyber weapons can damage a physical object as badly as a traditionalweapon," Kaspersky was quoted as saying during his keynote presentationin Sydney."It is a realistic scenario against any country because we all have the samesystems. All it takes is the wrong people with the right motives."
    • While both the public and privatesector have been scrambling inrecent years to protect criticalinfrastructure against cyberattacks, experts havesuggested that mosthypothetical attacks would likelybe limited in scope to a local orregional scale.
    • Kaspersky argues that the only way to prevent a catastrophic series of attacks inthe future would be for countries to come together and sign international pactsagainst the use of cyber weapons."Im afraid that theres only one way that they can be protected and thatsinternational agreements against cyber weapons, same as was done with nuclearweapons, chemical weapons and biological weapons," Kaspersky said.
    • • Both China and the US showed positive signs for peace when they held cyber security excercises earlier this year in a sign of solidarity.• During his speech Kaspersky pointed to the Stuxnet virus as a barometer for the power of cyber warfare. The highly-sophisticated virus successfullyinfected Irans nuclear programme and is believed to have caused critical damage to uranium-enrichment equipment.
