The internet is a giant, and many companies are trying to make it work better for them.
But some have found themselves vulnerable.
They’re using the internet to attack people’s lives, and to spread malware and viruses.
And they’re doing it with a cyber-warfare capability that is far from limited to the cyber-espionage that has been happening online.
And while the threat is growing, the tools and infrastructure to do so are rapidly evolving.
These cyber-attacks are not new.
In fact, cyber-threats are growing in severity and sophistication.
In this week’s New Scientist magazine, we look at the rise of cyber-extremism.
Cyber-terrorism and espionage have long been used as a tool for political purposes.
But cyber-crime is also on the rise, particularly cyber-bullying.
And, as the US faces growing threats from Chinese hackers, some fear that cyber-intrusion will only become more common.
These are the problems facing the internet as we know it today, and we explore how they are changing the way we communicate, work, and share our lives.
