Florence Parly the defense secretary for France today announced: “Cyber war has begun.”.

From The Register security report:

 

France’s defence secretary Florence Parly today declared: “Cyber war has begun.”.  And she said the Euro nation’s military will use its “cyber arms as all other traditional weapons… to respond and attack,” as well as setting up a military bug bounty program. Parly made her pledges during a speech to the Forum International de Cybersecurite (FIC) in the northern French town of Lille. Her speech was on a topic that most Western countries shy away from addressing directly in public. “The cyber weapon is not only for our enemies,” said France’s defence secretary this afternoon, speaking through a translator. “No. It’s also, in France, a tool to defend ourselves. To respond and attack.”
