Back from the Star Wars movie and it seems like that even a long time ago in a galaxy far away we still can’t have secure systems.  At one point in time the security code for the secret Jedi transmission was broken for a certain reason…. one that I won’t go into …so as to not spoil the movie. 


I think it just goes to show that we’re always going to have security issues to deal with, don’t you think?


…and yes, it was very fun and tied up a lot of threads between the movies I grew up with and those of today.

    Yes, that’s right, R2-D2 can hack any system and gain complete control over it just by twisting a few knobs here and there. I guess it just goes to show that, without physical security, your software security is of no use.
