    That;s what they are for - to attack each other. Without declaring outright war.

    Their purpose is information gathering to better attack a targeted nation plus acquiring the ability to sabotage a targeted nation's infrastructure.
    The example posted is about rival groups hacking each other for better leverage against common targets while not a partnership. A competition of similar goals for similar targets.

    It's about more efficient subjugation. Reducing the target's ability to physically resist a physical war.
    The rival hacker becomes an unknowing tool to that end.
