Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet

Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet | Personas 2.0: #SocialMedia #Strategist | Scoop.it

It wasn’t malicious. The file itself was the size of a small JPEG. It was given the absolute lowest priority. And it was set to self-destruct if anything went wrong. But this small file allowed one single hacker to measure the Internet activity of nearly half a million connected devices around the world, then share the results with everyone.

How was this even possible? The "hacker" barely hacked anything. In reality, they gained access to all these systems because each had the default "root" set as a password. With this access in hand, they ran several tests focusing on Internet structure and activity. And what they created from all this data is a spectacular map that captures a day in the life of the Internet (and all of its users).

Enrique

Gracias por dar ejemplo de transparencia compartiendo tus insights.
Me quedo con la duda de si el conocimiento valioso es como el aire o como el oro.
Una visión filantrópica nos llama a expandir abiertamente el valor del conocimiento (casi siempre como sabiduría), pero por otro lado vemos cómo en difentes ámbitos el conocimiento pragmático es un requisito del poder.
Lo que parece cierto es que la liberación vendrá de los que prefieramos un mundo "open" frente a los que encierran bajo siete llaves sus conocimientos para obtener beneficios sin fin (léase empresas farmacéuticas, por ejemlo) y privilegios de enriquecimiento sectario (lobbies).

Sigamos con el murmullo los que queremos seguir volando...
