Quantum Computing will kill Ransomware

| The age of encryption will end soon.
Soon all of your eastmost peninsula secrets are belong to us.


| This sounds like a ploy so sell IoT quantum secured toasters.


| quantum encryption?


| Your quack computer will never crack the Enigma code!


| Isn't there quantum computing resistant encryption in the works though

| Besides you could just increase the length, quantum computers don't have much memory to work with right now, which is the only reason they haven't fucked rsa up the ass just yet

| Why not just run everything in a container, which would prevent executables from interacting with anything on the filesystem that you don't want them to interact with? That would put an end to most malware, not just ransomware.

and what about rootkits?


| >>627446
Rootkits, as the name implies, have to have root access on the system in order to work and have to modify and take ownership of certain operating system files in order to remain hidden from the user. If you run a rootkit in a container, it will not have the ability to do that because it can't see anything beyond the container. At most it will confuse the container's false root directory for the operating system's one and attempt to do its thing there.

and what if a rootkit installed a malicious kernel module? then it would have access to all the internal data structures of the OS, right?


| >>627426
Because automation, interconnectivity and going fast is how today's networks work.


| >>627459 except for the fact that if everyone ran everything in a container they would start finding ways to figure out if they're in a container and 0 days to escape like that docker cve in 2019

There is no silver bullet and never will be

| As long as quantum computing doesn't kill sex then I am okay with it.

Is this the end of cybersecurity as we know it? Will it become redundant?
Or will a new era of quantum-cybersecurity begin?


| >>627677 if cyber security becomes useless Amazon would go out of business and so world every other retailer.

No there's plenty of money, plenty of talent, and plenty of solutions to be had even in the future of quantum computers
