The Null Device

The age of "black ice" is nigh, as firms wary of crackers are reportedly installing "counter-offensive" software for automatically retaliating against crackers. Mind you, I suspect that the software is more likely to end up crashing hijacked machines than flatlining rogue console cowboys; also, I suspect that once some crackers figure out how it works and how it selects targets, coaxing it into attacking innocent bystanders will become a new extreme sport for script kiddies.
