Throughout the years there have been many cyber attacks around the world, yet there is no real solution to the problem. 'Mafiaboy' a teen hacker, was arrested on 2001 for having sent a virus that shut down Yahoo, Amazon, Google and many more big companies costing them millions if not billions on their stock markets. He recently claimed that he could do it again if he wanted to and that the government should do nothing about it. No one is safe any more. This is the cyber age, now a days anyone has access to guides and tools to hack. There are also people how can put the world at their feet with one click of a button. If you think you are safe because you do not use the internet as much then you're wrong, hackers can leave cities in the darks when ever they want to and there is no stopping the, this has just begun so brace yourselves because something big is about to go down.

First I would like to say how ridiculous my oppositions arguments are. Most if not all seem as if he is looking at the internet and the age in which we live from the perspective of a 10 year old. Besides that I shall continue.

Firstly, the claim of "many" cyber attacks. The word many is very subjective and without any sort of claim I can dismiss this claim. Secondly, Almost of all cyber attacks have nothing to do with god like hacks, complicated algorithms, or password crackers. Almost all hacks are based on two things. Some sort of trick:

or because of a loophole (which I will not provide a link too since this is very general but will if asked)

Tricks are usually low level hacking and have to do with internet spam or computer malware/spyware. They have some sore of trick like claiming that you have a virus.
Loopholes are not one specific thing. It is just some sort of logic hole in a program, site etc. that some programmer or someone with the right software (your usual hacker) can exploit.

Next is the claim that anyone can put the world at their feet with the click of a button. Instead of being mean and mocking you I will pose this simple question. Why hasn't this happened then? Where are ISIS or Russian hackers?
The answer is simple. It is because of two things. The first is that Most Notable hackers (please don't make any anonymous references) have been caught. This is because of my second point. Hacking is DANGEROUS!

Think of hacking like finding the spare key outside someones house. However that person may have security or has a way to track you. This can range from a firewall (extra lock or guard dog) a camera or being able to track your fingerprints. Hacking is a two way street and often the police with their own hired hackers will track you down and arrest you.

Last is your claim that hackers can shut down electrical grids or something of that nature? (not sure what your saying mate) To that I say go do some research on your countries/cities/towns/house power system since many people get power in different places and/or forms.
