CyberStockFireEye has released a report to illustrate the features of international and local cyber attacks that government could launch in times of conflict.

The “World War C: Understanding Nation-State Motives Behind Today's Advanced Cyber Attacks“ report says governments intend for state-sponsored attacks to protect national sovereignty and secure power, FireEye said Monday.

Kenneth Geers, senior global threat analyst at FireEye, said some regions use unique cyber weapons with targeted attacks to achieve geopolitical goals, help allied countries and prevent future attacks.

The report covers the Asia-Pacific, Russia, Eastern Europe, Middle East and U.S. as regions with varying characteristics of cyber attacks.

Report authors also forecast national infrastructure outages, cyber weapons agreements, privacy issues, cyber attack players and anti-detection technologies as factors that could alter the cybersecurity landscape.
