Hackers Likely to Use “Virtual Singapore” Project for Plotting Terror Attacks
The director of programs at Singapore’s National Research Foundation said this week that the Virtual Singapore project will be a hot target for hackers as it could be used for effectively plotting terror attacks.
George Loh, who led the development of the project for the Prime Minister’s Office of Singapore, says that while the project will be instrumental in improving the lives of Singaporeans, they need to think two or three steps ahead as it could also create big problems when used by malicious actors.
The Virtual Singapore Project, a digital version of the city-state, is considered to be one of the most ambitious 3D modeling projects of its kind. The model will be using big data to assist in a number of urban planning matters.
