0xOmar, the Saudi hacker who posted the credit card information of thousands of Israelis on several occasions, has rattled Israeli nerves over the past few weeks. But it is important to keep these events in perspective: 0xOmar is both a strategic and technical novice. An amateur. Or as real hackers would brand him: a script kiddie.

The threat he represents is one we can overcome. This said, it is time to take cyber warfare seriously and realize the extent to which it is going to revolutionize the way future wars are fought.
