The Japanese equivalent of Q seems to be developing a bit of code that would act as a cyber army and trace, identify, waterboard and disable various sources of cyber-attacks. Meanwhile, WW2 treaty doesn’t say anything about that.
According to the local media reports, development of the virtual cyber weapon has started four years ago. Since then, it has already been tested in some closed network environment. Industry experts assume that similar cyber weapons are already in use in some countries, including the United States of America and China. However, Japan has a number of legal problems deploying the weapon.
The matter is that after World War II, Japan has got a number of quite tough rules on who the country is able to invade, while there are no mentions about the use of cyberweapons. That’s why the speculations are that both the Defense Ministry and Foreign Ministry have started legislative consideration about how to use this virus. In the meantime, the Defense Ministry's Technical Research and Development Institute, which is engaged into the development of this weapon, outsourced the above mentioned project to Fujitsu. As a result, after three years the virus is ready to defend the country from all enemies, including North Korea.
The Japanese technology features the outstanding ability to trace cyber-attack sources. It is also able to find the immediate source of threats, along with the ability to "springboard" computers used to transmit the virus. The weapon disables these and gathers relevant data on the attacker. Finally, the software is able to shut down Denial-of-Service attacks and prevent the low-tech cyber attacks.

|useless measure, nothing will happen. The hackers are step step ahead of every counter weapons !|
|Is that thing from Robocop?|
|Lol exactly my thoughts, does looks like a baby prototype of that big ugly bot in Robocop.|
As for automated anti hacker software, sure Japan has the technology and brains to pull it off, but China has the money and manpower to thwart it. As for the claims of shutting down ddos attacks, unless the software shuts down incoming connections to the ddosed server or somehow hacks the computers used to ddos and shut their connections down, how can it achive this? Of course that is assuming you cannot change the ip on the fly of the victim server and switch it over to a backup server that will get ddosed instead?
Anyway as for the rules on Japan since ww2, Japan needs to grow a pair of balls and tell the west to stfu, Germany who started ww2 has been allowed to build up a large military, navy and airforce. But Japan is not allowed an army, navy or airforce asides from the limited number they are allowed only under the guise of the Japan defence force... Who are they going to defend with such low numbers and hardware?
Try stop China seizing the very servers this so called cyber war suite will protect... If they cannot even do that what use is the cyber defences?

|I thought the same thing..."Holy Hell",Japan went and created Robocop technology!|
|holy &#@$t batman, robocop has returned, and he is a deadly computer virus from japan, lol|
|thnx fir the read...."Red One Deploying Grapple Hooks...."||
