Summary Research into Intelligent Agent (IA) technology and how it can assist computer systems in the autonomous completion of common office and home computing tasks is extremely widespread. The use oflA's is becoming more feasible as the functionality moves Into line with what users require for their everyday computing needs. However, this does not mean that IA technology cannot be exploited or developed for use in a malicious manner, such as within an Information Waifare (IW) scenario, where systems may be attacked autonomously by agent system implem-entations. This paper will discuss tne cilrrenlStcite Ofmalicious use of lA's as well as focusing on attack techniques, the difficulties brought about by such attacks as well as security methods, both proactive and reactive, that could be instated within compromised or sensitive systems.
