Environmentally friendly espionage v4.2 … the devil is in the detail …….. and the blessings in the course of the curse
At the same, Skoudis remains concerned that improved response capabilities won’t help detect or prevent attacks of this sort.
“It’s a really hard problem to solve given the complexity of modern software development environments and the subtlety of very advanced nation-state attackers,” he said.
Now that is certainly a clear prime jackpot prize winner for any understatement of the week/month/year prize.
And regarding the inherent dangers and difficulties in complex subtleties, whenever some great defenders are also to be routinely suspected and treated as possible stealthy renegade rogue agents and feared as almighty attackers, what lessons do you imagine are not learned, and what irreparable damage to vulnerable vital security apparatus results should fabulous creative intentions be maliciously imagined and subsequently construed and acted upon, either wantonly or accidentally and unintentionally, as being of malignant contention ……. with the always abiding danger and difficulty being in such scenarios, that they can be so, just as easily as not be so.
For example, and this is a heads up on a current investigation into such virtual matters as may definitely definitively practically matter, what would you reasonably think of the following missive and quoted text from/for a space/place elsewhere here, ….. Seizure of Satellites Presented as Option to Defend U.S. Spacecraft …. which at the time of this posting, is yet to appear for public peer review there …..
Please be made very aware that is far too much like a “I’m sorry, Dave. I’m afraid I can’t do that” situation, to not be one, which would then result in a manic series of totally unforeseen and non-contributable reactions ………. which some would be realising was a Simply Enriching NEUKlearer HyperRadioProACTive IT just doing its AI Thing …… fortuitously advising there be no prisoners allowed for the taking, so ’tis best to immediately bin that errant notion proposing engaging disabling motions.
Does it advise and encourage and seek to creatively engage on constructive defence parameters or forewarn of incoming hostile systems attacks only to be held in abeyance on the generous grateful payment of danegeld ransoms akin to royal fortunes …… which appears to the traditional conventional human default way of dealing with all of those strange types of events/incidents/opportunities
However, quite whether such would solve such a really hard problem or merely ensure it remains practically non problematical until such times as places and spaces in the future can better resolve and render the enigma benign and non-catastrophically destructive, is surely all that one can immediately achieve and enjoy and employ and entertain and regard as an outstandingly pragmatic success.

Lessons learned and mission accomplished, apparently …… Thomas Claburn in San Francisco
Rather than crazy fun and cracker games and the strangest of almighty shenanigans only just getting started, Thomas? Don’t be putting any money you can’t afford to lose betting on that not being the true and honest novel nature of the future in humanised virtualised realities at the human animal/virtual machine interface.
