DDoS attacks aren't a new thing. But an new type of service denial attack is appearing. Permanent Denial of Service (PDoS) attacks infiltrate unsecured devices and corrupt them so that they are made useless. While an epic pain in the butt for the owners of attacked devices, PDoS removes devices from the Internet that could be used in botnet attacks like last year's Mirai incident.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
