We are going to advance ourselves right into oblivion if something doesn't stop this constant need for better and better technology. Though I know it is human nature to want to make things better, I have noticed in my lifetime more and more dangerous situations created from advancing technology to the levels we have and are continuing to do.
This article mentions the FBI, Homeland Security, etc., are all concerned at what is going on and how bad the situation is with cyberattacks. In the 60 minutes intervieew with Comey back in 2014 he mentioned how disturbing it was when the iPhone of that terrorist couldn't be de-coded by the government because Apple created a phone that could not be broken into it by the government (or anybody else) to get information from it that could help in the case. Now Trump is calling an emergency meeting over cyberattacks.
It's a constant fight to keep one step ahead of the "bad guys." We create a way to block them, then they figure out a way to get past that. We have always had crime and I don't think anyone would deny that, but I have never seen such threats as we are having today with our personal information, government information, company information as we have now.
We all use the internet but I also feel since it's creation, we have unleashed more dangerous times.
Just my opinion but am interested to hear other's thoughts on this.;
