    Worst-case Scenario


    by santeewelding ·

    Is that my door is blown and breached. Agents with MP5s take me one way, and the computer another — both to secrete and violate with intrusive inspection.

    My anti-malware is not up to this.

    What is?

      capabilities of what any anti-malware can do, of course.

      So, in that worst case scenario, you need about two well-armed and highly-trained commandos on guard outside the premises and two more inside.

      You probably want them to be unobtrusive, perhaps in “plain clothes” instead of a uniform, although uniformed personnel have a deterrent effect. So would a stronger door, but it shouldn’t be stronger than the walls and the shutters that quite rapidly move into place to cover the windows when an approaching threat is detected.

      Assuming that each 4-man team works an 8-hour shift, there are three shifts per day, and each team has two consecutive days off-duty per week, then you would need at least twenty bodyguards with perhaps one or two more available as “backup” if someone is unavailable for duty.

      Of course, the defenses depend upon just how many enemies you have and what resources that they could feasibly have available to them. I would not expect nuclear warheads, but remember 9/11.

      There are also worse threats, perhaps, than enemy agents that kidnap you while others steal your computer — nerve gas, for example. Or an earthquake, a firestorm or global warming and climate change. 🙁

      5 meters high, 2 meters thick, with a moat.

      anti-aircraft weaponry as well.

      that will stop ’em. 😀

        If I had enough money, which I don’t.

        In these matters one must avoid fingering the beads of security.

        Pay attention to the gaps between.

      But, if ‘they’ want you they’re going to root you out of there or just blow the whole thing in on top of you and sift through the rubble for your corpse and your dead pc.
      I recommend compliance with the law. It’s too tough to remove bloodstains.
      Wear clean underwear.

        Relevance is a relative, which you aptly put as a question.

        If you are asking yourself, I can’t answer. If you are asking me, the answer should be obvious: I put it here, and here it stays.

      “Die Hard – The Load of Bollocks For God’s Sake Don’t Make Another One PLEEEEASE!” and so I know that you can make a hard drive explode remotely and take out half a city block.

      Now, THAT is anti-malware!

        with a remote detonator that uses a virtus to activate the detonator when the user presses the enter key?

        Didn’t Sandra Bollock star in a tech movie as a computer expert where it was an icon on the screen?

      Total Unobtrusivity

      by locolobo ·

      In reply to Worst-case Scenario

      Become totally unobtrusive. Sell all your possessions including your computer. Move to a cave. Live off of lizards & rats. The agents with MP5s will leave you alone. The social workers… I dunno

      BTW: leave yourself at least one change of clothes, clean or not. 🙂
