In spite of significant ethical challenges faced by researchers evaluating modern threats, the computer security field has yet to grow its own active ethics community to describe and evaluate the ethical implications of its work. Modern threats such as denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, worms, viruses, phishing, and botnets underscore the need for Internet security research in an increasingly networked and computationally reliant society. This research involves not only appropriate responses but also difficult issues of privacy and responsible disclosure of vulnerability information.
