*cough* Some people get pleasure from being trolls on the internet so yeah whats so wrong with a game in comparison?
It isn't about trying to hide the malware, it is very obvious that it is there.
It is about thwarting any further analysis, or at least making it a pain in the butt.
So you know for a fact you've found a bit of malware, but as soon as you probe it to find it's secrets it kills its self.
Did you miss the bit where it said that it has wifi?
If you program it properly, then that means it fails safe.
Naturally the software wouldn't be running on Windows.
Not a single Google car has failed gracelessly.
Erm its already sorted out? There is a human in the car/truck you know for that exact reason.
It detects an unusual situation and gets the fleshy to take over.
And once a set of road works are mapped, the cars can learn from others that have already gone through.
Ideally the councils/counties would actually have some ability to control the autonomous cars, specify road closures and stuff like that before the car even gets close.
Wouldn't you prefer automated trucks?
Computers can see all directions at once, humans can't.
That is the main problem motorcycles have.
Technically you just described a fraction.
Oddly enough all the headlines state carbon dioxide, but the articles body says carbon monoxide.
Kinda makes sense, this would be an awful lot easier with carbon monoxide than dioxide.
You are clearly clueless about how Linux does it, and yes Windows can not do it.
On my servers, the DNS server runs under it's own user. It can't touch anything it isn't supposed to. The mail server runs under it's own. The web server runs under it's own. Hell even the server monitoring software runs under it's own user.
This is by default with nothing further to do - No service can muck with stuff it isn't allowed to, and even if there was autoplay on USB sticks, nothing on that USB stick could touch any of the services.
How does Windows compare again?
Which is not how system services are designed to be invoked at all.
On Linux the attack would have faced a lot more challenges though.
No autoplay (which was the core attack vector) and you'd hope the SCADA software would run as it's own user under Linux which isn't possible with Windows.
This attack doesn't seem to require joining the network in any way.
A simple wifi scan will do it which would still be occurring whilst locked.
What exactly is wrong with anti-caking additives? Generally people don't like their salt as a single solid mass.
It isn't really hard? Big job = lots of people involved.
