Fuzzy security



  • Saw this on TV yesterday. What would you do if you accidentally recorded someone entering (part of) the secret access code to an ultra secure lab?

  •  I'd be wondering why such an ultra secure lab is using such simplistic security measures. 



  • I actually thought at first that the WTF was him flipping us off...

    Personally I would edit the film, inserting a new piece of footage showing the incorrect code being entered, then flagging the system to look for that code to be tried and initiate a silent alarm.

     But of course, I'm not part of thier security process, so this probably didn't happen.



  • I'd apply a crude blur effect around the region, ignoring the obvious fact that you can still tell exactly what numbers are being pushed.

    Is that right?



  • KattMan's got the right idea, but the film crew has still seen the original code. Have this person change their code (and berate them for not thinking about the camera), and rig the old code to trigger the silent alarm.



  • haha i've seen that, too! and had a laugh :D

     



  • You know? I think that they didn't really film him enter the real code. The producers of Galileo aren't really stupid, but they know their target audience is. I think they're making fun of the latter whenever they can. Which is about all the fricken time. I'm not sure if that target audience even exists or if everyone just watches the show to laugh at the extremely stupid, low-level "infotainment". Sure they sometimes say something that you didn't know already, but in a way that makes you think "god they're stupid".

    "Galileo Mystery" is better anyway. "... so in the end of this two hour show about whether bigfoot is really just a mystery, in which we showed the same 5 video sequences over and over again and paraphrased a few little meaningful sentences numerous times, we can conclude that indeed, it is. OR IS IT?"

    You forgot "And then have the film crew assassinated to make sure there are no witnesses"!

    ... I have nothing to add. Absolutely nothing.



  • Why assassinate the film crew when they only know the code that now activates a silent alarm? That's why you changed it in the first place.

    Because it's fun?



  • Assassinations are neither clever or right...they are however fun!

    shrugs Because he told them.  So he has to kill them.  That's just the rules.
