I was reading about a quite nifty device that can essentially turn anyone one into a very skilled hacker with about as much training as is needed to
learn how to use I don't know, say microsoft Word...
It's being developed by the US, prob DAARPA and it's designed to be used by troops and the likes on the ground, basically they have just collected
all the tips and tricks for things like wireless network hacking, weakness probing, finding user names, passwords recovering data you get the idea.
I gotta have a really good look for a link later, but the artists drawing actually made it look like a kids touch screen computer
but thats the
sort of thing you need, chunky, big handles and all that. All they have really done is used all other peoples code that has in some cases been around
for years (I am only now really getting my head stuck into this kind of thing - looks like I'm about 10 years too late!) stuck on a few goodies of
their own and put it all behind a graphical interface any mug can use.
Put it this way... I want one
But that there is an indication of things to come, this sort of thing is going to be as important as UAV's.... In fact no reason why a UAV could
not perform functions like that on wireless networks from the skies with the operators anywhere else in the world.
Maybe America realises they have been a little sloppy - like all other countries - in cyber security and now they are going around tightening all the
bolts down so the ship don't sink for a very silly reason!
