Cell
(Stephen King novel / another bad zombie movie)

When a strange signal pulsates through all cell phone networks worldwide, it starts a murderous epidemic of epic proportions when users become bloodthirsty creatures, and a group of people in New England are among the survivors to deal with the ensuing chaos after.



OH my goodness gracious. We are doomed.

What could that nice president Trump do with this alert thing?

Could he block all interpersonal communication?



I suppose with a flood of messages someone could create a Denial of Service attack.

I know once in awhile we get alert storms from work and 150 or so message come in 1 second apart, and you have to "Read Now" or "Read Later" as they come in before you can use the phone ... well, at least that's how it works on my flip-phone.


Locally, someone hacked the emergency sirens a few years back and kept turning them on until the city had to disable them until a more secure system was put in place - at a big cost.

In 2018, a remote Alaskan community’s infrastructure was hit by a malware attack which forced it offline. It was only then they realised how much they depended on computers.

In the borough’s purchasing department, staff faced filling out forms with pen and ink while their computers sat idle. Then they had a bright idea. In the cupboard were a couple of old electronic typewriters. They dusted them off and used them.
