    Cyber warfare: Britain developing ‘virtual weapons’ to combat hacker threat

    UK Daily Mail
    May 31, 2011

    A cyber-weapons programme to counter growing threats to national security from cyberspace is being developed by the Government, it emerged today.

    The scheme will provide the UK with a ‘toolbox’ of offensive options to fight online hackers targeting the country’s critical services and government departments.

    Armed forces minister Nick Harvey admitted that cyber-weapons have become ‘an integral part of the country’s armoury’ as he admitted the programme exists.

    ‘Action in cyberspace will form part of the future battlefield,’ he told the Guardian.

    ‘We need a toolbox of capabilities and that’s what we are currently developing.’

    The exact nature of the weapons being developed is being kept secret, but Mr Harvey confirmed they would be governed by the same rules that apply to the deployment of other military assets.
