Data itself isn't good nor bad

"Data itself isn't good nor bad, data just represents the surrounding reality. The more data we may access, the more accurate model we may create of the reality, thereby also define our actions in ways that are maximally beneficial to our aims. The net must not be restricted by moral, ethical nor legal issues prevailing in different world locations,
data must flow freely."

-"Chip"/"Chip's parazite", 1995/12

Американские беспилотные истребители теперь летают под Linux

15 сентября 2011 года в компьютерные системы центра управления полётами беспилотных истребителей MQ-9 Reaper на авиабазе «Крич» (Creech AFB) в штате Невада проник вирус. Первой заражение обнаружила 24 воздушная армия ВВС США, отвечающая за кибернетические операции, и незамедлительно оповестила об этом командование базы. Вирус был локализован и изолирован при помощи стандартных средств мониторинга и защиты, применяющихся в компьютерных системах и сетях ВВС. Затем была запущена полная проверка с целью установить источник заражения и очистить систему от вируса.
