Given the computer revolution is about 60 years old it should not surprise you that many of those pimply-faced nerds are now your neighbors.

And as one of those former teenaged nerds I hate to tell you but you have been putting your life in our hands for decades.

I am not so patiently waiting for Voyage to extend the service to my neighborhood. I’d be happy to use it.

One of the biggest waste of money these days worldwide. Self driving cars that is.

Hacking a Linux system is no harder than hacking any other operating system. The reason it is not done often is because hacker's write malware to attack the most common system which is currently Windows. Linux is used on a relatively small number of of computer systems. That will change if self driving cars or other products are equipped with Linux. The bigger the population of Linux systems the bigger the target for malware.

So tell me what software you and your friends have written that results in my life being in your hands for decades? I'm interested in hearing about your background.

Most of the web is run on Linux, IBM uses Linux, Microsoft uses Linux, Largo, FL uses Linux for their email system and have yet to get a virus. Yes, Linux can be hacked, but, it is extremely rare because of two reasons, 1) it is a small market and (more importantly) 2) it is difficult to get past the built in security features. I have yet to hear of a Linux system getting hacked, it might have happened, but in all the research I do on Linux, I haven't found it.

My friends and I have been working on communications services, including 911 services, and building the back bone of the internet since we were fresh faced kids out of college working for startups. Nothing like being called in the middle of the night because some activated the burn hotline before we finished testing the equipment to get your adrenaline going.

Search the web for "Linux Malware" and you will find many articles of hacked Linux systems.

Here is a recent one:

New HiddenWasp malware found targeting Linux systems | ZDNet

The National Vulnerability Database run by the US government lists over 7,000 vulnerabilities in Linux.

NVD - Results

Not all of these vulnerabilities have been found in the wild, but almost all of them were found by successfully hacking a Linux system, hopefully by someone wearing a white hat.

I for one will never use a driverless car nor use an ATM nor use a computer nor a cell phone I won't even watch TV. I just don't trust these newfangled things. I am happy to stay in the dark ages

Being called in the middle of the night seems to standard in the software world.
I worked in software development for a medical device manufacturer and worked primarily on medical imaging scanners (CR, DR and CAT scanners). When the machines failed the field service people were called and if they couldn't fix it they called the Electrical and/or Software engineers. Always late at night!
