Kostadinov goes on to note that most cyberterrorism actions are generally focused on website sabotage and email blasting. In order to prove that the network breach was a terrorist attack the company would need to provide electronic evidence of these types of information warfare. Information warfare is a term often used interchangeably with cyberterrorism but provides a deeper understanding in the shift of how data has become fundamental to society. As governments, companies and people shift to the use of digital information so have the methods used to attack (Gilmer, 2001). In order to combat this aspect of terrorism, the military have adopted computer forensics as part of their defenses (Vacca & Rudolph, 2011).

The plot forces the audience to question whether humans can control the technology they create and if our desire to continually make advancements in technology might be to humanity’s detriment. The novel, ‘Black Hole’, written by Geraldine Stowe, is set on a star colony called ‘Estra’ in the year 2305 where technology has become so advanced that nearly anything is possible. The social comment reminds the audience that even though we live in world full of advanced technology, our negative traits remain the same. This is presented through Dante and what he is forced to go through abuse just because he is different from his society Examples of futuristic and advanced technology are interspersed throughout, ‘I, Robot’, placing the film easily in the science fiction genre. Detective Del Spooner is employed to investigate the apparent suicide of Dr Alfred Lanning who “practically invented robotics.” During Spooner’s quest to uncover the truth, he stumbles upon Lanning’s “unique” creation, Sonny.
Matt Viani Ms. Ross Conspiracy Portfolio 10/31/2013 Moon Landings: Hoax or Not? A conspiracy theory is defined as a belief that some covert but influential organization is responsible for a circumstance or event. Conspiracy theories have been around for decades, and have really gained an impact with the invention of the internet. Currently they have even become the norm in today’s society. It seems that after any catastrophic event the internet is inundated with stories claiming “false flag events” and “crisis actors” along with theories that appear from an alternate reality.
Carr argues, in reference to Stanley Kubrick's: 2001: A Space Odyssey, "as we come to rely on computers to mediate our understanding of the world, it is our own intelligence that flattens into artificial intelligence." (Carr, 2008, p.1). Carr believes that the constant need the human race has shown for such technology, will end up stripping humans of their humanity. The article fights to explain how the days of old are being tainted by these new technological advancements and how in the end, humanity will become "artificial". The article starts by explaining the effects that technology has had on both Carr and his close friends.
Pornography is an industry that has steadily become booming in the more modern decades. It’s availability on the internet to all and any who can access a computer, makes the issue of whether it causes violent sexual attitudes and behaviors, one that requires thought investigation. The following paper will summarize two articles; one supporting the fact that pornography encourages aggressive sexual behaviors and beliefs, the other disclaiming this hypothesis. While both articles give convincing, informed, and relative arguments, the way that Pornography as a Cause of Rape is presented lacks key elements such as counter arguments, and complete information when discussing studies, which make its points valid. The Role of Pornography in the Etiology of Sexual Aggression provides a more accurate article citing both studies supporting its claims as well as studies discounting them.
A lot of illegal programmes inside computers gather information about, for instance, web sites that we have visited, information that we have searched and they send this information to organisations that use these data to understand our preferences in terms of our political idea or our sexual preference. Consequently, our freedom is threatened by these organisations and people have fought for years and even dead to obtain it. In conclusion, I do not want to spread fear towards who is about to use this incredible mean of communication but I wanted to make you aware of dangers that is possible to meet in this “virtual world”. Also because we can receive a lot of damages by our unconscious behaviour and not only in terms of money. Knowing exactly what we do can help us to avoid problems and perhaps regret something that we have done for a long time.
Nina ends her article with three cases of cyberbullying causing the victim to commit suicide. The second text is an article written by a cyber-bully called Aleks Krotoski. Actually he was not as much of a cyber-bully as he was a teenager who enjoyed being antisocial on the internet. At least we are given to understand that not actually hate on someone because any racial or religious reasons. Either way he tells the story of how he discovered the internet and how he could simply hide behind his digital mask and saying things he probably wouldn’t have said if he was confronted with these people in real life.
