Bombed

Well, interesting. The two worlds won't be kept apart. And the bridge is people.

The grid and it's supporting subsystems were griefbombed. Apparently not by any particularly tricky exploitation of the system, but by exploitation of the people.

Social Engineering 101, as they say.

"I send this to you for to have your opinion"

"Send this to everyone you know, and Bill Gates will send you some of his millions"

"I find naked pictures of you on net. Is this you??"

"Click me and win $$$$$"

No need to exploit the technical systems when you can exploit the people who use them.

Maybe it's time to replace the reputation system with a web-of-trust.
