There Is No Such Thing As Computer Security

Attention Boeing, US Department of Defense, and everyone else: Please stop automating your planes, armies, etc and connecting them to computer networks. Their security will fail and you will lose control of those assets, with dire consequences.

Seriously, why can't everyone see this? Was Lockheed being hacked via RSA not a clear enough sign?

It's US military's conversion to drones that worries me the most in this vein. There's some seriously asymmetric warfare coming.

People will probably start taking computer security seriously after at least a million people are killed. If we are lucky, there will still be a human civilization at that point.
