Facts are always greater fiction and threats are as a sub-prime whine and imply catastrophic systemic and endemic weaknesses susceptible to exploitation and remote virtual manipulation.
An AI Bunker Blockbuster Bursting Holywood franchise script would have an Israeli spyware maker NSO Group as a supported shell corporation and criminal state sanctioned actor running the target: an Islamic State terrorist who was planning an attack during the Christmas season.
And with Western European law-enforcement officials closing in on the renegade rogue program, they try to kill the operation with a WhatsApp message, ignorant to the fact that it is already far too late, the trap has been sprung and the RAT is captured and confined for deliverance of fate and destiny which always lays waste to the miserable diseased cargo secured in such cages in order to better server and protect all humanities rather than just the Few.
Then one could glance and cue the bigger picture view providing future sourced production lines for franchising …….. When someone you thought was a friend is a terrorist, are they a two faced mortal enemy and phantom of the day time political opera foe to be vanquished and removed from the Greater IntelAIgent Games Fields of COSMIC Play.
Such could be scripted as an Immortals’ Answer to such an Abomination and Perverse Route Play Root as is exercised in the likes of the above. Where and to what that would lead is anyone’s to guess, but you’d have to be truly better than just real smart to know, for it is not as if it is likely to be something you know a great deal or anything at all about, is it ‽ .But you were warned about it, so it cannot be an utter unknown surprise …..
Reports that say that something hasn’t happened are always interesting to me, because as we know, there are known knowns; there are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns; that is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns — the ones we don’t know we don’t know. And if one looks throughout the history of our country and other free countries, it is the latter category that tend to be the difficult ones. …. Donald Rumsfeld

Oh, and with particular and peculiar regard to …..

…….. the next question logically is are you sure you want to try and bury this can of worms and out yourself as the enemy to be hunted and disposed of surely, for is that not a guaranteed certainty nowadays, Kieran McCarthy in San Francisco/El Regers, with AIMastery of a Commendable Command with Recommendable Control Narrative Advantages ?

Spooky Intelligence Servers as a Service
If I write a program to exploit something and it is traced back to me, I,ve broken the law at least twice; at home for providing a hacking tool, and two, the law of the targets home state. That is, unless I have diplomatic immunity – by being a spy, my only protection.

Wise customers don’t need to rely on diplomatic immunity providing any sort of protection for spying ….. or anything else one can imagine might be terrifically convenient, YetAnotherJoeBlow, …. once they are engaged with the very best of Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmentalised Information Suppliers.
And even should they prove and tend to be expensive, it is wise to pay the price for too cheap buys one peanuts and monkeys rather than crown jewels and guardian knights.
