Theres nothing to say these have to be the actual names Shirley its more secure to make them up i.e. Rhaegal+Dhampir .Though I can never get round why email addresses are used as part of a two part log in system on some sites.
Damn my securitys blown now!
There is nothing to stop sophisticated "bad guys" writing and distributing their own communication application even as they are reputed to do these days, use "game chat" to pass messages. Neither of option will give authorities any chance of accessing the intelligence they seek.
This has come up on the very same day Tourtech UK Ltd [ the motorcycle parts company] seem to have sent out a mass email to many customers with an attached receipt for work carried out to the sum of £351.24 . The source appears to be from their email server but they too seem to have neither registered on the ICO Public register nor reported the possible loss of customer data and are "investigating the matter".
its so much like self drive vehicles........ who takes the blame when someone is injured or dies through its actions [or inactions i.e. self preservation] ?
If one elected party brings them in and a death occurs during another parties term of office whilst under their watch, who exactly is to blame. The designer, innovator, programmer or the network supervisor?
These devices all suffer from a complete lack of security in any form related to restricting access, as previously documented by the TV show that caused an Alexa device to order online products using the owners account. They could at least have some form of verbal access code when doing such things instead of just acknowledging whomever speaks out loud..
Alexa Open the front door!..........
In the early 2000s, Mike Sellers was working on social AI agents for DARPA. During one simulation, two AI agents named Adam and Eve were given a few basic skills. They knew how to eat, but not what to eat. When they tried to eat apples from a tree, they felt happy. When they tried to eat wood from the same tree they didn't get any reward.
So far so good, right? Things started going haywire when another AI agent, Stan, was introduced. Adam and Eve learned associatively. Because Stan was hanging around when they were eating apples, the agents learned to associate Stan with both eating and the feeling of happiness.
Guess what happened next?
"At the time it was pretty horrifying as we realized what had happened," writes Sellers. "In this AI architecture, we tried to put as few constraints on behaviors as possible... but we did put in a firm no cannibalism restriction after that: no matter how hungry they got, they would never eat each other again."
So first to show the enormous cost of the project according to Nasa it spends around $6000 to send something the size and weight on a Lemon into space.
Second say you get this project up there and light the touch paper, how the hell are you proposing to slow such a mass going at the speeds you need for interplanetary travel ,create an stable orbit then fire off again to the next planet of interest as each would take days?
Not only that but the maths required for such navigational feats to hop planet to planet would be astronomical bearing in mind your "road map" is made from a telescope based on a planet millions of miles from where you are.
Thirdly what are the occupants going to survive on in regard to Air and food or is this going to be a one way journey?
[Quotes from google] :
How long did it take for Voyager to get to Pluto?
Launched in 2006, New Horizons is the fastest spacecraft to ever leave Earth. It crossed the orbit of Jupiter the next year and has been traveling nearly a million miles a day—but it still took 9.5 years for the spacecraft to reach Pluto and its moons.
What speed was the speed of the New Horizon satellite
The Jupiter flyby increased New Horizons' speed by 4 km/s (14,000 km/h; 9,000 mph), accelerating the probe to a velocity of 23 km/s (83,000 km/h; 51,000 mph) relative to the Sun and shortening its voyage to Pluto by three years.
When you look at it your propulsion is only a tiny part of the problem
Are a a convenience to some at times but are bulky compared to traditional metal keys and add more security holes than they cure.With a traditional metal key the doors can be locked and the vehicle is secured but with an electronic key it only has to be within range or have a range extender surreptitiously applied to the signal, for the doors to be opened and driven off by a.n.other.
Just because they are electronic many assume they are more secure than a metal imprinted key, they are not it is merely a different not better form of key coding.They also massivly multiply in expense to replace as the vehicle gets older, if you can even get the fobs made and coded ten years down the road from manufacture.
The problem is not so much remembering several passwords but in our I.T. fad culture, hundreds of passwords many of which require uppercase,lowercase, number etc or frequent changes for no apparent logical reason . Whilst its not an ideal 100% fool proof solution 2FA using a mobile app generated or recieved code is a way forward , as long as its not just a front to make a system "seem" more secure with a back door via a poorly constructed password. Even the U.S. Presidents Football uses a damn antiquated card code generator which was lost by one president [allegedly]
Talking of security its amazing how many Banking institutions etc require various ways of the user identifying themself over the phone but have no "Handshake" themselves to verify that they are genuine.
