I wonder how many U.S. Politicians share their keys to the Nuclear deterant?
Its my understanding the targets are pre programmed into the Warheads, be it there may be a selectable menu option pre launch.
Yes the Computer and even the Personel are open to corruption,technology will never change that,survielance will never change that it all a matter of risk.If anything the risk is much greater that a third world country will gain access to the necesary materials to make an effective nuclear weapon and a capable delivery system.
A very interesting and detailed book it relates the history of the UK fleet and how it has been diminished by various Parliaments over the years to the minimum threshold of only four, which barely allows one to be on patrol at all times and another to perform ancillary duties such as training Perishers.Additionally how due to reduced fleet sizes, it gets more difficult every year to provide adequatly trained crews who are prepared to spend months at a time away from home living in confined spaces with no outside contact.
As to firing an ICBM or the newer Cruise missle configuration should it ever be needed , it requires the boat to atain certain states of stable flotation and rediness matched by crew willingness to progress the system to an active state.This whole sequence of events may take up to an hour to achieve so no its not an instant push to launch that some may think.
It would be easier not that it will ever happen,to hack a surface vessel with nuclear capability as they only move in two planes not three.
"I don't drive. Why should I pay for roads that I never use?"
You don't happen to ride a freetard push [or even electric] bike do you?
Parties claiming bias is a way of getting even more air time allotted to your members to waffle on about your erroneous theories.
As for the BBC its a Dinosaur with a complete lack of any modern management skills in regard to providing on demand technology. They need to take a hard look at their competitors raking in money hand over fist [OOH look sky monthly subs plan far exceed BBCs yearly income per subscribed household].
Then work out how to bring the Ostrich like head in Sand BBC subscriptions and programming from the 18th century into the 21st.
Viewers have a wide variety of choice these days and its time the BBC actually competed with the market for its income not drinking Ambrosia wine all the time.
So the new iPhone X will recognize your face but not your eyes!
" Some old PCs will not do ANYTHING at power on if the battery is dead and/or CMOS corrupt. There ARE things that need an old PC."
Don`t forget the Compaqs which had the bios on the hard drive so you had to download the correct replacement firmware from their website on a new hard drive install......
Will be full of bugs given the number of lines of code they will have or will they crash too?
Is a reduction in accident figures then just make it a 30 mph [or less] speed limit on all roads,install speed limiters in all vehicles and instant jail for any traffic offender or anyone tampering with such equipment.There ya go saved billions of investment in new technology and being unable to afford a new "high tech self drive car" and removing any miscreants from the road.
In doing so Ive increased the employment levels in Vehicle equipment and testing jobs, Prison officers, re-offence prevention officers.Thus enabling the Billions to be reinvested into the economy and jobs rather than unneeded equipment that constantly needs upgrading at great expense.
Free Speech like Freedom and Free will has a cost
We are not just talking about those slow blade spinning droids much loved by nerds but high speed,jet powered devices too.
As for many of the "weapons" offered as solutions so far, just remember many of the areas under defense will be in civilian populated areas during peace time.
Its not so much knocking the device down thats going to be hard as you can launch tangle netting or a solid or liquid object once its in range.The difficulty is target recognition on such a small scale object in a variety of weathers and light conditions, given the airspace may also be full of wildlife.
So the lock owner is reliant on the lock producer having a secure enough server, thats up to the snuff of preventing a rogue compromised update that allows ner do wells access to propertys protected by said locks.
Was`nt there a "general consensus" about those too.........
I would`nt put it past some security agencys to pay an intreging amount for a chance to trace the money through the wash system.They may not get the root of this particular problem doing so but it would give a working knowledge and a fingerprint for furure issues.
Can the restricting of access to accounts from only certain I.P. address help in such situations?
Invite them to DEF CON ,collect evidence from other attendees then arrest the perp on the way out.......
My Dad > Your Dad
Cheaper and quicker that Royal Mail 1st class
Waits for updates from President Trump though the tweet may end up with some spilt Maglev Covfefe during the ride
So given the propensity for humans to change things, how long before self drive vehicles have their firmware hacked by users.Yea lets have it cut into traffic lanes making all the other SDVs behind panic stop or exceed the speed limit by 5mph or jump through a changing traffic light instead of stopping.....At what point does "its my property I`ll do what I like" become a big problem?
If you were oh......say a large western intellegence company and you wanted to poison the ransom well and thus deter others asking for money what better action could one take.........
So do you wear a dark coloured suit and glasses for work.Maybe we should simply refer to you as "A"?
The Vogons are also part of the simulation and may prevent finding the answer to the question
You forget to tell the retailer you needed covering expenses to test the gloves in different enviroments like aboard a SpaceX launch or even on the Space Station
Is they may get water,,,,,, er scorn poured on them
Ex Delivery drivers ........possibly
Yea but theres a big difference between a computer crash and a car crash,
The problem being in the future it may turn out to be a legal obligation to have your vehicle upgraded to the latest patch or face being unable to drive it [or it drive you] on public roads.
As to upgrading thr GPS software I have a 2008 Mazda 3 and a quote of £300+ for a sim card upgrade is a definate no no.
Fly-by Drones with wifi,the potential thief has no need to expose himself to get close access
Maybe they need a condominium building
President Trump says its definatly not the Russians
And will members please leave the poor Goats alone......
I believe I did see a post the other week stating 2FA is easily broken through intercetion techniques and as such is phsudo security.As to validation Id like the bank to actually use part of a specified phrase given by myself, to identify themselves to me not assume valid identification is all one sided.
Maybe it brought one back its big enough......
Is not amused by these deviant anomalies and may initiate a redesign of the human intuitive program.Zion is clearly at the root of the erronious code.
Maybe thats how life started on Earth......
As a precautionary measure I would have insisted on them wearing fingerless mittens to prevent accidental insertion of digits into moving parts or high voltage electrical components ,,,,,,,,and a ski mask to prevent chill blains from the extreme cold of the server room.
Like lots of aging and niche technology getting the neccesary support services from an ever decreasing supply of contractors becomes ever more acute and costly.I think in the end there were only two company able to work on the bird but beside that the insurance companys took a complete 180 once the accident happened and withdrew any resonable offer to insure them.
Ah you fell for the Bait
Yea but they would never get back to the start they only have a three minuite memory
They would have run a DNA test and arrested them the following day
In the same week Trump announces walls across the Mexican border......is it coincidence!
I thought the latest cost cutting idea from Councils was to get punters to fill their own holes in..... Mind some of those "instant" Porridges produced these days would make ideal filler and probably outlast any contractors patch
Well there is a surfit of Ewoks so I guess that alright
Unless you recieve the No signal in which case its just like being married
Maybe the wrist band could be set to give a suitable selection of background music when it detects the symbolic rhythm of the mating call,a hearty round of applause on completion and a reminder to use the Visa or Paypal app as the choice of payment for the young ladys company.
The Rubix clock..........it just needs someone clever enough to provide the solution
You could however make each a heat seeking smart bomb be it personel or vehicles
An Un-Fit Bit
Yea but it takes someone with foresight like Google to grab the Alphabet
