Based on Shannon information theory, it is possible to prove that if a particular piece of information truly exists, there is always an associated price to reveal it or publish it. The cost for that is not even that high. That is why keeping secrets is extremely hard. You see, if you for example disclose your name, it will be possible to tell you who exactly is prepared to sell your credit card details, where, and for how much exactly you can buy this information.

On the one side, it is a bit silly to buy that information, because you already know your own credit card information. On the other side, is surprisingly, not such a bad defense. It is strange to do that, but then again, most information security defense strategies look absurd at first glance. In fact, you can do that with any type of information. Where exactly are you now? It is very often possible to buy this information. About many people, this information is actually available for free. You see, I have been told that the term "kaffir" means "to hide the truth". If the "kaffir" can no longer hide particular truths, he could end up in deep trouble. In that sense, doxing someone has may have incalculable consequences.

Doxing (from dox, abbreviation of documents), or doxxing,is the Internet-based practice of researching and broadcasting private or identifiable information (especially personally identifiable information) about an individual or organization.


Dangerous stuff, isn't it?

So, we are sitting there on an Aristotelian contradiction: The data must be kept secret, but the data can also not be kept a secret.

If a first-order game, in which the hackers want a few billion dollars for NOT dumping that database on the web, a second-order game is actually more dangerous: They want from the US billions of dollars for NOT dumping the Chinese database on the web, syphoned off by the American spy services. So, now the hackers can blackmail and hence control the entire military and security infrastructure. I somehow suspect that they already do ...

Facebook already dumps much of that data for free. I wonder how they control this, since it cannot be controlled, while they must receive requests to control it anyway? In fact, why build more high-tech weapons to the tune of billions and trillions, just for someone else to control them?

The internet itself will slowly but surely kill the Pentagon.
