Facials via Hellfires coming soon to an enemy near you

This story is specifically about malware - but - can the use of facial recognition targeting be far behind?

Coming soon...the face only a Reaper armed with a Hellfire will love...

This is a lightly posted area of the forum but the story seems to best fit in the “technology” section. Complete article at link below.

Tomorrow’s Intelligent Malware Will Attack When It Sees Your Face

BY PATRICK TUCKER
TECHNOLOGY EDITOR
Defense One
AUGUST 14, 2018

IBM researchers have injected viruses with neural nets, making them stealthier and precisely targetable.

You may think today’s malware is bad, but artificial intelligence may soon make malicious software nearly impossible to detect as it waits for just the right person to sit in front of the computer. That’s according to work by a group of researchers with IBM, which they revealed at the BlackHat cybersecurity conference last week.

And face data is just one kind of trigger, the team said. Audio and other means could also be used.

Darn.....Too bad it is not something like a real "Hellfire Missile" that shoots out from your computer and vaporizes your ass....Oooooohhh, would be cool to have it do a facial recognition of Hillary Fiona Von Pantsuits as she logs on to her computer....Dammit.....

The thought of giving her a "facial" leaves me queasy.

And probably no one asked the question, "should we do this?"

Did they learn nothing from "Jurassic Park"?

Now I have to make appointment with chiropractor after the huge shiver went down my spine from reading "facial" and "hillary" in the same sentence.
