When you’re out with your friends, don’t worry about their security vulnerabilities
The world is a better place because people don’t care if your computer is infected with a virus or not, security expert Mark Russinovich says in his new book.
Russinov is a former US Department of Defense contractor who became the most outspoken critic of the government’s “cyberwarfare” policies, which he said was driven by a desire to win wars and maintain power.
Russinovich, who has written several books, including Cyberwar, says it’s no accident that people don´t seem to care about security vulnerabilities.
The real reason is because the Internet is a powerful tool to create and spread a new world order and change the world.
Russinova: I want people to know that they have nothing to fear from the cyberthreats of the past decade.
I want them to understand that we have an online community of people, with people from all walks of life, who are not scared to say anything, to share anything, and to share information.
The only way to be secure is to be aware of the dangers of the future and be prepared for it.
Russiab: What do you see as the greatest threat to the cyberpeace?
Russinav: I see it as the biggest threat to our civilization.
And that´s the biggest danger that we´ve ever faced.
And it´s not something that we can fix.
The best we can do is to take every opportunity to protect ourselves and to make sure that our society stays safe and we don´ve got to compromise ourselves to achieve that.
