    The UK's Ministry of Defence is looking for a few good men. To be precise, they are looking to amass an army of hackers to defend national security.


    At a cost of up to £500m, Defence Secretary Philip Hammond said the MoD will take on "hundreds" of IT wizards to work "at the cutting edge of the nation's cyber defences".

    He claimed, according to Reuters, "Last year our cyber defences blocked around 400,000 advanced malicious cyber threats against the government's secure internet alone, so the threat is real."

    "But simply building cyber defences is not enough: as in other domains of warfare, we also have to deter. Britain will build a dedicated capability to counterattack in cyberspace and if necessary to strike in cyberspace."

    He also said that these cyber strikes could knock out enemy communications, planes, ships and nuclear and chemical weapons, that "cyber weapons" could be used along with regular munitions in future conflicts.
