Japan develops virus to counter cyber-attacks: But can it be used?

Quote:
The Japanese Ministry of Defense has revealed its latest project to tackle hacking: a ’seek and destroy’ virus designed to track and disable the source of cyber-attacks.

The project, launched in 2008, cost $2.3 million over three years. Several companies competed for the contract, but Fujitsu was eventually commissioned to develop the new ‘cyberweapon’.

The virus has already undergone testing in a closed network environment.
Quote:
Unfortunately, Japan’s Ministry of Defense still has several hurdles to jump before this project can be utilised.

Current Japanese legislation prohibits an ‘offensive’ retaliation to cyber-attacks, meaning that the current laws will need to be updated before the cyberweapon could be used.

Equally, creating a virus of this sort would violate a clause banning virus production in the Criminal Code.

The U.S. DoD should just buy the program from the Japanese and use it.
