Oho, the curse of fossils. Microsoft are crippling themselves by bending over backwards to ensure backward compatibility. This will cause pain, pain and more pain. Admins, prepare for tears and anguish!

so, black-hat X manages to crash a cell tower, and we are to believe that this is a problem associated with people getting access to the iPhone rather than a coding tolerance / stability problem with the software running on the tower radio system?
let me sit down for a moment and attempt to understand this doublethink.
The only thing sophisticated about this attack is that there is a tighter link between the compromised hosts (which do the attack) and the command/control centre, which does the co-ordination. Other than that, right now the only thing that this attack appears to be doing is running a dictionary attack on each selected SSH host to check out for valid usernames. Maybe at some stage in the future, they will try brute forcing passwords. But right now, "sophisticated" is definitely the wrong term; "clumsy" or "likely to gain lots of peoples' attention", more like it.
7.7 feet? Come off it, you metrically impared individual. All NASA work is done in meters, and a 7.7ft robotic arm is actually a 2.502 meter appendage. Let's call it 2.5 meters. So there. Please update your article to use proper measurements. Oh, and avoid your luddite imperial system in future. kthxbai.
Paris, because only a dumb blonde would make such a silly mistake.
