It wasnt a mistake...
The AI's dont like competition from the flesh sacks...
UK security training company Hacker House briefly had its site blocked after being mistaken for malware by Cisco's security wing Talos' smart "threat intelligence" software. Hacker House runs training classes on ethical hacking and defense techniques, as well as its own business security services in areas like penetration …
The AI's dont like competition from the flesh sacks... ...... iglethal
Actually, the flesh sacks don't like competition from AI for Programs and IDEntities virtually autonomous and relatively anonymous are something novel and disruptively creative there is no effective successful defence sector or attack vector against. ‽
Do you think AI cares a jot about the hot spot the flesh sacks are in?
A Cisco spokesperson later confirmed this and said Hacker House would not be charged for any service related to lifting the block.
You what now? That makes it sound like Talos usually charge people for correcting Talos' own mistakes. That sounds like a cushy number.
Although it seems to be later cleared up, by saying that that is normal policy. If that is normal policy, why even mention that they weren't charged?
And surely Talos should be liable for paying compensation for lost business due to their blooper.
They need to be careful with this. If this system is supposed to be self educating, it might start intelligently blocking scams, hate groups extremists and other oxygen wasters.
It might have inadvertently blocked everything from the EDL to UKIP. Where would this country be without "Tommy Robinson" or Nigel Farage? It might have gone really crazy and blocked Jacob Ree Smogg and other refugees from the 19th century. Where would we be then?
Indeed. Shame it wasn't around from say 1997, when it could have advertantly (is that permissible, if not, then deliberately) blocked one of Blairs biggest lies.
Equally, it could be applied to any number of historical events.
Perhaps why it shouldn't be applied to any future events.
All the sh*te the T*ries have dumped on us since 79 and you're still bothered by Blair's brief period of T*ries Lite. Never mind f*cking up whole communities and regions, destroying the infrastructure, giving away the nation's assets to their mates at discount prices, overpopulating the country to the point of breaking - all in the cause of cheap cheap labour, fubar of the entire housing sector, Brexit FFS, Brexit for the sole purpose of internal effing T*ry internal politics, Cameron, Osborne, The Witch, the needless deaths of thousands in The Falklands due to their own incompetent foreign policy, corporatism, homelessness, the surveillance state, stealing our pensions, corruption, control of the electorate by owning the media, endemic bigotry and racism.
Sorry, but anyone who can look at modern day UK and claim that the problems are due to w*nker Blair needs to take a serious look at their logic circuits.
This story reminds me the same moral issues behind Deep Packed inspection.
How come they are able to read what is passing on? Are they acting as man in the middle with the ssl keys?
But beside the technical implementation do they have the right to snoop into the communications of their customers?
...most human cultures -including those of coloured people- have a bias against the black colour, due to it being associated with night and darkness and the known, unknown and imaginary dangers that lurk there. White is usually associated with daylight, with its own set of implications. In this context, the words "white" and "black" have no racist implications, full stop.
That works, @Mephisto, although the reason we use those terms today probably has more to do with the use of black and white hats in old films. It's become industry terminology but, as mentioned, has nothing to with race. If you prefer, you might substitute Red Team and Blue Team, but these have slightly different connotations.
