Cyber War

You can learn English vocabulary here, while reading through a very interesting article published in THE WEEK, with the title, 'It's a new chapter in history. Now we have a cyber war for real'.

According to experts, Stuxnet is the world's first cyber super-weapon. Who designed it? Who was the target? How does it work? Why could it be a danger to you and to me? What could be the long term effects of this powerful weapon? What do you think the American response has been to the Iranian nuclear crisis?

If you are interested in the answers to these questions, and want to learn English vocabulary along the way, then you will enjoy this free reading lesson.
