With the passive aid of Government and private sector, the inception of a new kind of war has commenced. The United States' futile attempt to halt nuclear proliferation bore the seeds of an unknown threat. The birth of cyber warfare has taken place. The article seeks to determine what laws are present to regulate such attacks and whether the general laws of war would apply in such circumstances and how can we mitigate this problem. Society would be marred with chaos and complete disorder, countries would have to deal with political insurgencies both internally and externally and the world economy would be in shambles. This article provides an analysis of the afore-mentioned matters and attempts in discussing these issues extensively. In this article we would look into Jus Ad Bellum under which we would tend to discuss various Governing legal principles, exceptions, various self-defense measures etc.
