There are generally two types of cyberterrorism that are distinguished by the motivations and goals of the perpetrators:
Ideological Cyber Terrorism: This type of cyberterrorism is carried out by individuals or groups that seek to promote a particular ideology, such as a political or religious belief. These attackers may target government agencies, critical infrastructure, or other institutions in an attempt to disrupt society and spread their message.
Retaliatory Cyberterrorism: This type of cyberterrorism is carried out as a form of retaliation for some perceived injustice or harm. These attacks may be targeted at governments, businesses, or other organizations that are seen as responsible for the perceived injustice.
