Test-fly an F-35 From Your Armchair!

Want the ultimate thrill of taking Uncle Sam's Club's latest into combat? Here is that chance. Check out the U.K. Register article (read it here). The highest-priced weapons platform ever is "unprepared against malware infections and other hacking attacks," according to POGO (the non-profit watchdog Project on Government Oversight). As Oracle's Ellison once said (read the article here):
You could kill everyone in the neighborhood in one week with an AR-15, but an F-15 could do the job in an afternoon.
 Talk about "the Christmas present that keeps on giving."

Huawei Walks Into A Texas Courtroom…



-->

The most interesting cyberwar showdown yet (see the full U.K.Register story here) will be in an East Texas federal district court, where Huawei will seek a permanent injunction against the U.S. Government ban on use of their hardware. Instead of waging a PR war (the smartest thing to do, offering a reward for anyone who can demonstrate a back door in their hardware or software), these idiots will rely on judge shopping and laughable arguments. I mean, imagine China asking for a “fair hearing” anywhere, given their record in so many areas.

Attorneys representing the USA do have one dilemma. Do they share the Zero-Day info they have on Huawei’s kit, and lose a big-time NSA tool, or do they claim national security concerns and obliquely argue their case?

Get some popcorn, the super-size soft drink of your choice, and enjoy the show.
