There is now a permanent cyberwar on the internet says security experts, and you probly won't even notice if you get pwned
A survey of cybersecurity decision makers found 77 percent think the world is now in a perpetual state of cyberwarfare.

In addition, 82 percent believe geopolitics and cybersecurity are "intrinsically linked," and two-thirds of polled organizations reported changing their security posture in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Of those asked, 64 percent believe they may have already been the target of a nation-state-directed cyberattack. Unfortunately, 63 percent of surveyed security leaders also believe that they'd never even know if a nation-state level actor pwned them.

The survey, organized by security shop Venafi, questioned 1,100 security leaders. Kevin Bocek, VP of security strategy and threat intelligence, said the results show cyberwarfare is here, and that it's completely different to many would have imagined. "Any business can be damaged by nation-states," he added.

According to Bocek, it's been common knowledge for some time that government-backed advanced persistent threat (APT) crews are being used to further online geopolitical goals. Unlike conventional warfare, Bocek said, everyone is a target and there's no military or government method for protecting everyone.

Sure there is. Dismantle the global internet. Only have national internets, and only nations that are friendly towards each other can have open internet borders.

The internet is just servers in a room, and cables underwater/underground and along telephone/electric lines.

Someone recently hacked my Head-Fi account and was trying to use it to scam people with a fake headphone listing.
