Hacking - Weapon of Mass Destruction

Postby neonblue » Wed Aug 05, 2015 8:08 am

This video brings startling insights into the world of those that hack and the many shades of their actions in todays cyber world.

The threat of compromised cyber security has become our planet's new weapon of mass destruction. The documentary Zero Days explores the growing concern that the disintegration of online safety has set the stage for potential physical dangers as well.

When the Harvard Brain Bank malfunctioned, that was a thing that made lots of people sad.
It wasn't long after that, the White House said the presidential "Nuclear Football" was accessed by hackers.

I wish the government understood a bit better, a cyber fortress is not as safe as a physical fortress -
Software is software, yet people expect it to protect them like a stone wall.

The tech companies did a great job manipulating the public into this position, but it's not too late for the gov't to wring them out for fraud and nationalize online services. Just cut the companies out, IMO. If they are going to allow backdoors and tricks/traps for spooks to use.

Back in the old days when someone aged beyond usefulness they were considered "harmless"...
nowadays anyone's grandma can set up a basement with some simple technology,
or even hack from a phone.

It does suck how quickly technology changes or is "updated",
seems that people have abandoned the idea of "good enough to work" and are letting tech companies run riot.

He finds his fellow guilty of a skin
Not coloured like his own, and having power
To enforce the wrong, for such a worthy cause
Dooms and devotes him as his lawful prey.
