Cyber terrorism is a term which represents an act of terrorising using cyberspace as a medium. This phrase is controversial as there is no exact meaning of it. Generally, it is known as "The premeditated use of disruptive activities, or the threat thereof, against computers and/or networks, with the intention to cause harm or further social, ideological, religious, political or similar objectives." The obvious dissimilarity between cyber terrorism and ordinary terrorism is its transborderless nature. Despite of that specific characteristic, the common challenge faced by both types of terrorism is the lack of definition on what terrorism is.
