8 Countries Accused Of Cyberwar Activities


Netherlands

In early October, the Dutch Minister of Safety and Justice asked the nation's Parliament to pass a law enabling police to install malware on private computers, conduct remote searches on local and foreign computers, and even delete "illegal files." The political nicety of securing permission from foreign governments is recommended, but by no means mandatory. If such a measure became law, the Dutch police would be empowered to use many of the tools of cyberwar against foreign nationals as well as its own citizens.
