Hactivism, Espionage, Cyber-terrrorism, Global Security

The U.S. Pentagon and Federal Agencies and New York Police Department are getting hacked many thousand times a day. China, Russia and North Korea have hacked into the data base of the Pentagon, and are continuing to do so. I would make the case this is global espionage and cyber-terrorism. We have not created strong anti-virus, intrusion defense software and hardware to prevent such attacks.

But what is most institutionally defeatist about this situation is that there are no international laws on espionage, and hacking and cyber-terrorism since all nations have been doing this since the creation of the modern sovereign state.

It is like the fiction meets reality case of Joseph Conrad's great novel: THE SECRET AGENT-of global espionage and terrorism.
