Cyberspace has a dark side, including terrorism, bullying, and other types of violence. It is essential to note that Cyberwarfare is still a kind of virtual war that causes the same destruction to a state that a physical war would also do. In this article, we discuss about cyber Warfare and Cyber Terrorism and outline their different types, motivation and countermeasures. The article concludes with the key findings from the literature and suggests avenues for future research efforts.
