Classes and Capabilities of Cyberweapons

There are several classes of cyberweapons. The table above, from Technolytics, shows the current classes, descriptions, and capabilities of cyberweapons. You can use your imagination to try to understand how an entity (like the U.S.) could conceivably use such cyberweapons to punish or retaliate against an adversary to accomplish a military and/or political objective.
