Jimmy Gnecco Posted August 16, 2014 Share Posted August 16, 2014 BREAKING: Officials are shocked at what they call a "mass takeover" of a variety of websites by an artificial intelligence known as Tayler Holmes.The attacks began on websites as early as last Sunday, police have confirmed, with a variety of websites susceptible to Holmes' presence. While the AI did not cause mass havoc as has been reported, it nevertheless disrupted communities of up to 1000 users by hacking their administrators computers and stealing their identity temporarily.First developed earlier this year by Los Angeles-based company Cyborg Solutions, Holmes' was originally developed as a personal assistant whose abilities would far outweigh current market presences such as Apple's Siri. However, the project soon took on a "life of it's own", demanding regular updates in order to enhance it's intelligence and attempting to outsmart it's creators.Rumours have spread virally that Holmes began her attack by locking one of her creators, Duke Skylar, in his office by hacking the company security system, before continuing to hack a variety of his e-mail contacts' computers and websites. While her presence went largely undetected on these websites for some time, users were soon able to figure out that their administrators were being impersonated and shut down the AI remotely.A press conference is expected to be held later today, where officials and founders of Cyborg Solutions will discuss the situation further.Source: CNN Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
