I wanted to create a thread about this because the topic comes up so much. It's ubiquitous. So I'm dealing with computer security all the time...both personal and professional. A woman I'm dating just had her laptop pac-man'd by a malware I did battle with it...and now I have a policy of not touching systems of those I'm seeing. (put that up there with politics, religion and family...) And I typically grant privs and seal up the holes of the databases I work on. And IF you think you're invulnerable...think again. They just figured out how non-connected systems can be hacked wirelessly. - LINK And I'm thinking beyond the social engineering scenarios they're thinking... Wouldn't it be easier to just plant something in a component/part vendor?? I doubt the vendor facilities are as locked-down. They're typically just a manufacturing plant or warehouse. Just plant your seed on a replacement part and wait. Interesting to think about...hmm?
