    Smile Starwars & suicide cats

    I guess this is an object lesson in the need for physical security at high tech sites?

    Control over heavily armed US war robots fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan was lost last year after a cat climbed into machinery at an American command base and "fried everything", a US officer has confirmed.
    Remember that the first computer "bug" was literally a large moth that shorted stuff out

    If you don't have physical security you don't have security.

    The most successful attacks come from within. The "temp" that social engineers himself to others accounts. The disgruntled employee that "repo modes" 100 cars thru onstar. The server room that overheats. The overloaded electrical service.

    Those are the "hacks" that most companies won't even admit.
