Juniper landed in hot water late last year after some of its networking gear was found to be carrying code that allowed for attackers to eavesdrop on traffic sent through virtual private networks (VPNs). According to analysts, the code is likely to have been developed by the National Security Agency (NSA) to conduct spying activities. Juniper has now said it will update the software in the affected products to fix the issue.

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.
