This year is one with a special need for PEACE. In addition to the long lasting COVID-19, Russia-Ukraine conflict introduced irreversible changes to the whole world. As the first military conflict between two countries with mature network infrastructure, the cyber war played a critical role in the conflict. From cyber espionage that happened last October, several destructive incidents occurred around the period of conflict. Showing us what will happen once the cyberwar breaks out. Not to mention that several nuclear-weapon level vulnerabilities discovered and weaponized in recent years, ProxyLgon, Log4shell, Spring4Shell may be the critical pieces. Moreover, new styles of hacking techniques are constantly introduced to the cyber landscape; Therefore, we should learn from the hackers and understand the impact of these newest hacking techniques. As countries’ internet infrastructures mature and their economic systems become increasingly connected, no one can avoid being influenced. Not only influence inside the Geo, from cyber security alliance, security supply chain, social media platforms, enterprises, people or even the crime groups and hacker culture is forced to make the change. Cyberwar is ongoing, and everyone is involved. To survive in the dangerous cyber world, we learn from hackers and toward PEACE in the cyber world.
