A Denial of Service Attack Might Be a Weapon [Video]

Is a denial of service attack, or distributed denial of service attack (DDoS), a weapon? That’s the question Mike Rugnetta and PBS Idea Channel set out to discuss this week. Sure, the rhetoric is filled with fighting terminology — attack, for example — but that doesn’t necessarily make a DoS attack a weapon. In a lot of ways, the argument hinges around intent of such an attack, and how it denies certain actions. Don’t take my word for it, though.
