Philosophy Wire: Computer networks, courage for the obvious

080416-F-5297K-101Philosophy Wire by Spiros Kakos [2012-03-25]: Foreign spies should be assumed to have penetrated the computer networks of the US military, American politicians have been told. Security experts testifying to the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee said the penetration was likely so complete that attempts to curb it should stop. Instead, cyber defense should be about protecting data not controlling access.
[source: BBC News]. Admitting the obvious (who can foolproof such a vast network 100% ?), sometimes requires courage. That is why US will remain ahead of all others for many years to come.
