A counter-attack is a term taken from the military jargon used to describe large scale, usually strategic offensive operations by forces that had successfully halted an enemy’s offensive, while occupying defensive positions. A counter-attack is considered to be the most efficient means of forcing the attacker to abandon offensive plans. Cyber counter attacks are sometimes used as a means of self defense to slow down or even stop cyber attacks and the question of their legality is a recurring agenda.
