President Obama wants to prevent a cyber weapon ‘arms race’

“During an address to reporters at the G-20 international summit in China, President Obama stated that he’d like to prevent an ‘arms race’ among countries that have various cyber weapons at their disposal. The remarks come after Russian president Vladimir Putin denied having any involvement with the hack of the Democratic National Committee’s emails earlier this summer.

Obama said that the world is ‘moving into a new era where a number of countries have significant capacities’, before noting that the United States has ‘more capacity than anybody, both offensively and defensively’ when it comes to cyber weapons.”
