“The #hacker attack prepares us for the realization of the new self-fulfilling prophecy: a cyberpandemic. As for Covid, it has already been predicted by the same who will then take care of its management. By now humanity is destined to live in a state of terror permanent “: with this tweet published on August 3, Iaria Bifarini kicks off a social debate on a disturbing implication of the hacker attack on the Lazio region.
For Bifarini, and for some of the users involved in the social question and answer, in fact, it would not be an isolated episode: “For some time now we have been living in a state of permanent danger … we have not forgotten about -queida and the isis… “points out @DiteChe. “After all, what better tool (terror) can provide the control of billions of people, and influence their daily life and especially their consumption?” @EvaVola wonders. For Bifarini, everything “fits into a much broader picture”, and according to other users it would be a justification for tighter control of online activities and, if necessary, for the forced closure of social profiles and mailboxes.
But not all users participating in the debate agree: someone, in fact, points out that hacker attacks have existed for decades, “since e-mail was invented”, simply now the Lazio Region is making more news. Someone else points out that just as hacker attacks have always existed, there are also antivirus solutions and solutions to protect the data processed, which, perhaps, has not been well applied by the Public Administration.
“Ransomware has existed for 10 years. Computer viruses in general practically since e-mail was born. It is a matter of computer culture, experience and habit to be attentive to certain e-mails, even if it is not the unique dissemination tool “, writes @PcyberPiero.
Someone else, then, argues that “more than #attaccohacker, it is yet another demonstration that regionalism – especially on # Health – is a bad idea”.
The comment of the joker on duty is also inevitable, because on the other hand, you know, social networks have the power to play down everything, even on the most serious and complex issues: hacker attack? “Look what happened that they left the pc to Zingaretti for 10 minutes …” comments @g_zerbato ironically.
In her biography Twitter defines herself: “Author and blogger. Bocconian redeemed (and not repentant). No political fans. In favor of science but against the prevailing scientism”.
