Cyberwarfare is an attack by one nation on another nation’s computer systems. The main weapon in cyberwarfare is computing technology. Typical attacks include hacktivism, spreading fake news especially related to national or political events — basically anything that can cause the target’s government to become unstable.

You can compare cyberwarfare to a silent war where battles are fought in secret with no explosions or bursts of gunfire typical of a conventional conflict. You hear only the soft taps of fingers on a computer keyboard. But once the “Enter” button is pressed, it’s enough to disrupt the operations of an entire nation’s government.
