Quote: The effect of hundreds of persons reloading a targeted page on the internetthousands of times effectively blocks entrance by outsiders and may even shutdown the servers, as occurred in the attacks on the commercial on the websites of yahoo, Amazon, etc.

Expectations:I expect to learn about the hacktivism and cyberterrorism.

Book Review:The author of this chapter is Mark Manjon and Abby Goodrum. They discussed the world of omputer hacking and computer terrorism, when we say hacking, it is where an unknown person accesses your computer without you knowing it. It is like they can control your computer itself and do whatever they want to. They can copy, mess up your files, or even worst, they can blame you for what they have done. They can claim it as a prize and say anything negative about you for what they have done.

Things I have learned:I learned that hacking and computer terrorism, has to do with computer ethics. Hacking is not always a bad thing to do. There are also advantages when it comes to hacking.

Integrity Questions:1.) What is hack? 2.) What is cyberterrorism? 3.) How can computer terrorism be affected in computer ethics? 4.) Who is the author of this chapter? 5.) How can hacking be stopped?
