When Sir Timothy John Tim Berners-Lee envisioned the Internet, no one could probably though as how computers and computing clouds can be used as war instruments! However, with increasing reliance of governments and enterprises on computing devices this probability has become reality. Through out history of classical wars, civilian commercial entities have not been the primary targets of warfare! In those days the only means of warfare was kinetic warfare, using spears, swords, ballistic weapons, explosives, and so on. However, nowadays we are observing the appearance of doctrine and dedicated cyber warfare programs all around the world! Countries are begun to include cyber warfare in their military doctrine as well as their college curriculums on both offensive and defensive applications. They are developing strategies and tools to conduct information attacks and train developers as software soldiers while their main targets are usually normal civilians at least as jumping points! This talk lightens the current trends and mechanisms in cyber warfare with specific focus on countries that are actively involved and their attack techniques. This talk looks to the future directions in running such cyber attacks and necessity to educate users. Finally it suggests some solutions to make more peaceful cyber world.
