The hacker web site Anonymous has suggested that US President Elect Donald Trump appoint John McAfee as his cybersecurity advisor.
McAfee’s colourful history includes setting up the eponymous cybersecurity company, tweeting about his extreme life, and being linked as a person of interest to a murder.
(See John McAfee’s twitter account from which he has said he would decline any offer.)
What may have prompted the suggestion from the hackers could be Mr Trump’s own suggestion via a tweet that ‘many people’ would like to see interim UKIP leader Nigel Farage as the UK Ambassador to the United States.
In the interests of ending all cyber crime within the next week or so CBR humbly suggests that PE DT immediately set his best people on appointing the following:
Mr Walt Disney (deceased) – what Walt doesn’t know about ……isn’t worth knowing – simply defrost and reanimate or read what The Sun reports what we know about the legend of him being cryogenically frozen
That kid from War Games (IMDB)
HAL – yes that HAL, the artificial intelligent computer from the Arthur C. Clarke novel 2001: A Space Odyssey (best known for the quote “Open the pod bay door HAL” which he didn’t say but to which he answered: “I can’t do that Dave” link)
The Pink Panthers – not from the movies – the eastern European jewel thief gang
Pickles the dog – look it up
Wiley Coyote and all the ACME Cyber Security companies
That should sort it.
Here are CBR we don’t do fake news – just the occasional gag!
