In principle malicious hackers can make a root kit virus that spreads like wild fire along the millions of servers in a datacenter.
This root kit virus targets the clock cycle settings in the BIOS of a single blade server, like it reflashes the BIOS, reprograms it. Over clocks the computer so that the CPU “burns” meaning in Dutch “malfunction” and “damaged”. It (the CPU) must be replaced, but the newly placed CPU will also burn very fast again.
A whole datacenter is down, and all the system administrators work like crazy, like motherfuckers, replacing the millions of CPUs, and while they are not yet finished the first ones already start to burn again, wouldn’t that be funny??? 😀
This further spreading of such a virus among the millions of servers of a data center, can be done just as easily as hacking for instance the GNOME Bugzilla password of a Bugzilla account. …Its only a mouse click away… 😉
When this is done on a datacenter in the backbone of the internet (like the ones from nsa, cia and microsoft, because the whole damn internet traffic must pass these #bigbrotheriswatchingyou datacenters) we got a beautiful sale out, meaning total collapse of the internet 😦
