For the first time The US Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have placed members of a state sponsored hacking group on their Most Wanted List. Does this mark a change in the view the world has on hackers? Gone are the days of Hollywoods' portrayal of hackers being young kids in a dark bedroom trying to beat the IDS of a of major corporation for fun and bragging rights. Hacking is now a recognised industry in countries such as Syria and North Korea, where it is being deployed as a legitimate military tactic. This poses some interesting questions, "Should we have our own cyber army?" and "Are we doing enough to prepare ourselves for the battlefields of the future?"
The US Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are willing to pay $100,000 reward for any information that leads to the arrest of the heads of the infamous hacking group Syrian Electronic Army.
