Description Discovery of Stuxnet (a computer worm) in 2010 can be described as a turning point leading to intensification of cyber weapons discussions. This paper aims to map different approaches to the term cyber weapons and apply them to real cyber incidents respectively. Discovery of Stuxnet is determined as a starting point from which the literature review dealing with the concept of cyber weapons was carried out. Papers published within the period 2010-2019 in DBLP Computer Science Bibliography Website, Scopus and Web of Science databases were analysed. The analysis helped to introduce three main approaches to cyber weapons. These approaches were then analysed and two main factors causing discrepancy were identified.
