Security vulnerabilities are a dime a dozen now-a-days. But, when a couple of months ago we learned about Spectre and Meltdown, it finally started to dawn on people just how insecure all our “high tech” really is. We’re using hole-ridden, bug-infested products.
I don’t know if the constant deluge of security exploits has resulted from the challenges that arise from working with highly complex technology or is caused by some sort of surveillance conspiracy. What’s certain is that this shows just how weak our technology is and how easily it can be overcome.
