Default Best Hackers in World, Biggest News Story You Probably Never Heard

Computer geeks won a major battle without a shot being fired this year and you probably didn't hear about it.

http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2010/...ear-ambitions/

This is probably the most profound news story of the year because a huge battle and maybe a war did not occur in the Middle East between Israel and Iran. Israel would have likely attacked Iran this year to stop their nuclear program from bearing fruit and it didn't happen.

Read about this a couple months ago, but only after it was brought to my attention...no news coverage that I was aware of. Pretty amazing what a little programming can do. I'm kinda baffled by the complexity/"intelligence" of the worm and what it accomplished.

Some of that info may be overly embellished, but I definitely think that "cyber warfare" will continue to escalate over the next several years.

Wow, almost as neat as someone blowing up some skyscrapers inciting the ridiculous engorgement of the USA's military industrial complex, the intelligence industrial complex, and domestic spying industrial complex.

The only thing engorged here is your irrational hard-on for the military.

The fact that it "Adapts" scares me.

Hasn't anyone watched Terminator? It's going to become self aware!!!

Am I the only person who wonders why on earth you would need a $4,000 propane-powered toilet?


[SERIOUS]

It's not like this whole cyber-warfare thing is particularly new. After receiving intel that the Soviets were planning to steal a certain industrial control system from Canada, the CIA slipped some code into the product which subsequently resulted in the Urengoy - Surgut - Chelyabinsk natural gas pipeline explosion.

In 1982.

"Before starting the burn cycle, be sure to add the one packet of anti-foam into the liquid portion of the waste...not on top of the mountain. "

Lol @ mountain.
