[OP-ED]: America’s internet delusion

 05/22/2017 - 08:51
If there are deficiencies with cybersecurity, we consider them separately. We embrace the “internet of things” without admitting that it’s also the “internet of hazards.”
English

The United States may have escaped most digital damage from the global “ransomware” virus, though cyber experts fear more attacks. One possible explanation is that the malicious software (”malware”) harms older versions of Microsoft’s Windows operating system, which most Americans have replaced. Perhaps many users in other countries haven’t. Whatever the explanation, this is not the end of internet threats.

[OP-ED]: Estados Unidos se engaña con Internet

Si hay deficiencias en la seguridad cibernética, las consideramos separadamente. Adoptamos “Internet de las cosas” sin admitir que también es el “Internet de los peligros”.

Estados Unidos quizás haya escapado la mayor parte de los daños digitales del virus global “ransomware”, aunque los expertos en cibernética temen más ataques. Una posible explicación es que ese software malicioso (malware) daña versiones más viejas del sistema de operaciones Windows de Microsoft, que la mayoría de los estadounidenses ya reemplazó. Quizás muchos usuarios de otros países no lo hayan hecho. Cualquiera sea la explicación, éste no es el final de las amenazas de Internet.

In March, two illegal immigrant teens were accused of attacking and raping a 14-year-old girl in a Maryland high school bathroom stall. The girl had reported the boys to the police, claiming that they’d held her down as she cried and tried to break free, and repeatedly told them to stop and as they took turns assaulting her.
