This paper provides a semiotic perspective on cyberterrorism and its opportunity to cause maximal damage while using terrorist propaganda. By and large, cyberterrorism refers to the use of the Internet, technology, and computer-based networks against critical infrastructures. A major premise of this paper is that the Internet revolutionizes the way in which cyberterrorists communicate, recruit new members, and advertise propaganda for their cause. In an attempt to shed light on the transition from traditional to modern methods of attack, the authors apply the different levels of Stamper's Semiotic Ladder - morphological, empirical, syntactical, semantic, and pragmatic - to cyberterrorism.
