ABSTRACT
News about distributed-denial-of-service attacks on Estonian government Web sites might have represented more smoke than fire, but it also revealed a new political battlefield. Networking veterans say public officials' accusations can make ad hoc "hacktivism" seem like a state-sponsored attack. When you add porous network defenses and a credulous media, you've got the potential for a real problem.
INDEX TERMS
