Read all about it, this is the future of military technology, cyber warfare. As our lives are increasingly smothered with electronic interfaces all connected to the Internet, we lend ourselves to easy access, theft of identity and intellectual property, and even propaganda and indirect mind control of sorts. Our lives being in a large part digital means a world leader could come in at any time and totally change the way people in the world interact, and they could control our money, what we buy and sell, all of that.
In the 20th century, this would have been a job for James Bond.
The mission: Infiltrate the highly advanced, securely guarded enemy headquarters where scientists in the clutches of an evil master are secretly building a weapon that can destroy the world. Then render that weapon harmless and escape undetected.
But in the 21st century, Bond doesn’t get the call. Instead, the job is handled by a suave and very sophisticated secret computer worm, a jumble of code called Stuxnet, which in the last year has not only crippled Iran’s nuclear program but has caused a major rethinking of computer security around the globe.
Intelligence agencies, computer security companies and the nuclear industry have been trying to analyze the worm since it was discovered in June by a Belarus-based company that was doing business in Iran. And what they’ve all found, says Sean McGurk, the Homeland Security Department’s acting director of national cyber security and communications integration, is a “game changer.”
We should all be aware of whats happening in our world, politically, militarily, environmentally. This helps us to make edumucated decisions and to be good responsible citizens. It also helps us see how the endtimes are near as it relates to the bible and the coming of Jesus.
Exciting times, fascinating stuff!
