Shamelessly stolen

Here's video of a presentation about a magnificent piece of research. Students were asked to cheat - individually or collectively - on a cybersecurity exam. They all succeeded, in ingenious ways - you'll laugh yourself silly with this one. Even better, they called the paper 'Embracing the Kobayashi Maru' - massive bonus points for a Star Trek reference.

You can read an early version of their paper here - the final version is in a paywalled journal, even though (as US military employees), American taxpayers have already paid.

Of course it's still rightwing nonsense - despite the US releasing Stuxnet, it's only 'our adversaries' who cheat. OK then… But the research is still valid.
