Cyber War Manual Proposes Online Geneva Convention

from the new-rules dept.

A new manual for cyber war has been compiled by international legal experts and published by NATO. The manual proposes that hospitals and dams should be off-limits for online warfare, and says that a conventional response is justified if an attack causes death or serious damage to property. The manual might get its first practical application today — South Korea’s TV stations and banks have come under an attack which may well originate from North Korea.
