EVERYTHING GETS HACKED: We’re Not Prepared for AI Hackers, Security Expert Warns.
Schneier’s eye-opening talk at the all-virtual RSAC 2021 conference examined the consequences, positive and negative, of artificial intelligence learning to hack all kinds of systems. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic forced him and other RSAC participants to present via video this year, but that comfortable setting didn’t blunt Schneier’s concerns.
“Any good AI system will naturally find hacks,” said Schneier. They find novel solutions because they lack human context, and the consequence is that some of those solutions will break the expectations humans have—hence, a hack.
This is especially true for computers. “We never close off all the avenues for hacking,” he said, positing that once AI systems start looking for hacks, vulnerabilities will be found at a scale humans are simply unprepared to handle.
We’re very close to being a very long way from comparatively simple ransom hacks like Colonial Pipeline.
The 63-year-old allegedly walked into a meeting with Plutus and rattled off a series of accusations to the alleged fraudsters, including Adam Cranston, the socalled Plutus principal and the son of a former ATO deputy commissioner. Barrett then left the room as another alleged blackmailer told Cranston and Plutus members they would need to pay $5 million to keep the journalist from exposing them. The NSW Supreme Court jury in Barrett's trial was unable to reach a verdict on the single charge of blackmail and Justice Peter Johnson, SC, discharged it on Wednesday. Outside court when asked if he was ready to do it again, an emotional Barrett said: “Of course I am, I'm not guilty.” His barrister, Clive Steirn, SC, said: “Mr Barrett maintains his plea of not guilty.”
