US Military Morpheus Computer can thwart Cyber Threats of any level

    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) of United States Department of Defense is said to be developing a computer equipped with utmost security features making it extremely impossible for hacking.

    The US Military calls this $50 million Morpheus Computer Project as a nightmare to hackers as it has the potential to thwart cyber attacks of any range. Already $3.6 million has been spent on this project so far and more is said to follow by next year

    Technically, Morpheus system differs from the traditional security methods which are usually followed by software patches after a vulnerability is exposed.

    Instead, Morpheus operates in a way where data is moved randomly on a rapid note and destroyed making it harder for hackers to hold critical data for ransom. It operates like a Rubik Cube where the colors change in the blink of our eye.

    DARPA hopes that its Morpheus can help prevent attacks such as Zero Day Exploits that have become so prevalent in 2017 and will be witnessed even in next year.

    Usually, the most common vulnerabilities include permissions and privileges, buffer errors, resource management, data leak, numeric errors, crypto errors and code injection.
    With Morpheus, detection of data and location of passwords would change on a random note.

    More details are awaited to get clarity on the technology and the project.
