CyberChaos – a new category on Samadhisoft



– I don’t often add a new category to the site.  But, as I watch the passing river of information and events go by, I’m seeing a new thread beginning to clearly stand out from the background and I think I need a new category to tie my observations together.

– So, the CyberChaos category is born.

– Hacking, Cyber Warefare, Malware, Viruses, Root Kits, Back doors, Worms, Keyloggers, Cyber Vandalism, attacks by individuals, attacks by organizations (Anonymous and LutzSec, for example) and attacks by nation states (Stuxnet and Iran) and, finally, some of the bizarre ways that the new technologies are weaving themselves into the fabric of our lives.

– I’m not surprised.   I read a lot of cutting edge science fiction and these things have all been predicted loosely for years.   But, the present becomes the future, inexorably, and here we are – science fiction is becoming reality.

– I’ve been vacuuming up a number of stories of late that are part of this thread and I think I’m going to introduce what I’ve collected here in one whack to get the new category off to a good start.

Enjoy (or go hide under the bed – as you like):
