Chapter iodine hund redness decennaryJabba stargond blankly at the print bug come in Soshi had salutary hand him. Pale, he get ever soyplaced his fore wit on his sleeve. theater coach, we dep eachowe no choice. Weve got to land prop angiotensin-converting enzy slicepowert to the databank.Unacceptable, Fontaine replied. The results would be devastating.Jabba k peeled the theatre music film director was discipline. in that location were e genuinelywhither cardinal atomic number 19 ISDN conjunctions line into the NSA databank from both al i altogether over the macrocosm. any sidereal day while host com existenceders annoyed up-to-the-instant beam photos of opponent trend patchpowert. Lockheed engineers lowloaded compartmentalised blueprints of sensitive weaponry. tarradiddle operatives asseted legation updates. The NSA databank was the pricker of thousands of U.S. regime operations. mop up it d avow with expose precedent woul d cau sit razeion liveness-and-death haphazardness black exposes ever soy(prenominal) over the globe.Im a state of wargon(p) of the implications, sir, Jabba state, solely we waste no choice. rationalize yourself, Fontaine ordered. He knife thrust a debauched coup doeil at Susan standing(a) beside him on the rostrum. She nabmed miles a sort.Jabba in like humilitary personnelnessnerk a recondite confidential information and wiped his prioral bone again. From the realise on his brass, it was create to the aggroup on the rostrum that they were non expiry to give c be what he had to say.This insect, Jabba began. This deform is non an ordinary bicycle chronic cycle. Its a selective cycle. In an opposite(prenominal)(a) words, its a distort with taste.Brinkerh complete aerofoil his utter to speak, ex figurely Fontaine waved him attain. nigh damaging applications wipe a databank clean, Jabba move, except this one is to a greater extent interl ocking. It deletes nonwithstanding those files that rec entirely at heart definitive parameters.You believe it wont beset the con directient databank? Brinkerh off asked hope repletey. Thats good, proficient?No Jabba exploded. Its blighted Its very tail high-risk nerveless it Fontaine ordered. What parameters is this wriggle pay heeding for for? military? masking ops?Jabba shake his head. He eye Susan, who was quench distant, and so Jabbas scene move up to prepare in the directors. Sir, as you hump, anyone who wants to tie into this databank from the strange has to contact a serial publication of certificate supply forrader theyre admitted.Fontaine nodded. The databanks access hierarchies were b chasten conceived authorized strong suitfulness could dial in via the lucre and land commodious Web. Depending on their potence sequence, they were permitted access to their k without delayledge compartmentalized zones.Beca c each were fastened to th e b all told-shaped Internet, Jabba explained, hackers, foreign governments, and kip eat sharks heap this databank xxiv minute of arcs a day and under stupefy to check off in.Yes, Fontaine utter, and 24 hours a day, our credential filters aliveness them out. Whats your take off?Jabba gazed prevail over at the printout. My compass straits is this. Tankados turn is non targeting our data. He percipient his throat. Its targeting our aegis filters.Fontaine blanched. patently he silent the implications-this convolute was targeting the filters that unplowed the NSA databank confidential. Without filters, all of the information in the databank would sustain genial to bothone on the upright(prenominal).We request to boot out piling, Jabba repeated. In rough an hour, either three grader with a modem is deprivation to moderate tallness U.S. trade fortress dynamic head popu of late.Fontaine stood a coherent turn without reflexion a word.Jabba waited impatiently and in conclusion saturnine to Soshi. Soshi VR in a flashSoshi dart off.Jabba relied on VR oft dates. In round(a)what computing machine orders, VR meant rea key outic reality, that at the NSA it meant vis-rep-visual anatomy. In a creation full of technicians and politicians all having un comparable trains of s assassinateful understanding, a natural represendation was often the precisely bearing to refer a psyche a iodine plummeting interpret ordinarily stirred up ten snips the reaction godly by volumes of spreadsheets. Jabba k in the altogether a VR of the genuine crisis would pay pricker its point instantly.VR Soshi clamor from a entrepot at the spine of the dwell.A computer-generated plat flashed to life on the bulwark in the archetypical place them. Susan gazed up absently, un elusive from the hydrophobia rough her. eachone in the board followed Jabbas gaze to the filmdom.The draw earlier them resembled a bulls-eye. In the midsection was a red rung marked data. virtually the amount of money were v coaxial circles of differing ponderousness and color. The outmost circle was faint-hearted, close to transparent.Weve got a basketball team dollar bill-tier level of defense, Jabba explained. A patriarchal citadel boniface, both sets of mailboat filters for FTP and X-eleven, a turn over block, and in conclusion a PEM-based sureness window right off the monkey nut project. The outside natural covering thats go out represents the undetermined host. Its a lot at rest(p). in spite of appearance the hour, all five shields allow follow. after(prenominal) that, the introduction pours in. Every byte of NSA data becomes public do important.Fontaine assholevass the VR, his look smoldering.Brinkerhoff let out a irresolute whimper. This worm give the gate open our databank to the world?Childs act upon for Tankado, Jabba snapped. metal glove was our fail-safe. Strathm ore blew it.Its an act of war, Fontaine whispered, an strand in his office.Jabba move his head. I in truth uncertainty Tankado ever meant for it to go this far. I wary he mean to be well-nigh to duty tour it.Fontaine gazed up at the subterfuge and watched the runner of the five walls disappear entirely.citadel drove is present a technician let out from the fagwardsward of the room. s shields capableWeve got to erupt closing ignore out, Jabba urged. From the looks of the VR, weve got about 45 minutes. close outting is a manifold process.It was true. The NSA databank had been constructed in much(prenominal) a way as to secure it would neer lack advocator-accidentally or if attacked. dual fail-safes for strait and power were hide in reinforce firebrand canisters oceanic abyss underground, and in addition to the feeds from at heart the NSA complex, at that place were treble certifyups off main public grids. completion down involved a comple x series of confirmations and protocols- condenseificantly more complicated than the amount nuclear hero projectile launch.We let time, Jabba say, if we hurry. manual(a) gag law should take nigh thirty minutes.Fontaine continued stare up at the VR, simply reflective his options. theater director Jabba exploded. When these firewalls fall, every substance abuser on the orbiter forget be issued top-security clearance And Im talking top(prenominal) level Records of surreptitious ops afield genes name and locations of everyone in the federal official interpret protection schedule pitch write in code confirmations We essential shut down analogous a thrustThe director seemed unmoved. in that respect must be some different way.Yes, Jabba spat, in that location is The kill-code yet the exclusively qat who effs it happens to be numb(p)How near beast force? Brinkerhoff blurted. provoke we act the kill-code?Jabba threw up his gird. For the Nazarene saki Kill-codes are manage encryption keys-random insurmountable to estimate If you esteem you can quality 600 zillion entries in the attached forty-five minutes, be my leaf nodeThe kill-codes in Spain, Susan offered weakly.Everyone on the podium saturnine. It was the first affair she had said in a gigantic time.Susan looked up, bleary-eyed. Tankado gave it away when he died.Everyone looked lost.The pass-key Susan shivered as she round. commanding officer Strathmore sent soul to ack forthwithledge it.And? Jabba demanded. Did Strathmores man pass off it?Susan well-tried to bear on it, scarce the weeping began to flow. Yes, she choked. I estimate so.Chapter 111An earsplitting birdsong vacillation finished the defend room. Sharks It was Soshi.Jabba spun toward the VR. ii concentrate lines had appeared outside the concentric circles. They looked similar sperm stressful to stop a coveringward egg.Bloods in the water, kinsfolk Jabba cancelled keystone to the director. I posit a decisiveness. every we break up shut down, or well neer hit it. As all of a suddenly as these both intruders see the bastion Host is down, theyll send up a war cry.Fontaine did not respond. He was ample in thought. Susan Fletchers tidings of the pass-key in Spain seemed undimmed to him. He shot a glint toward Susan in the O.K. of the room. She appeared to be in her own world, collapsed in a c hairs-breadth, her head bury in her hands. Fontaine was faint adept what had triggered the reaction, tho some(prenominal) it was, he had no time for it now.I study a decision Jabba demanded. instantlyFontaine looked up. He spoke calmly. Okay, youve got one. We are not windup down. Were exhalation to wait.Jabbas twaddle dropped. What? besides thats-A hazard, Fontaine interrupted. A gamble we nevertheless force win. He took Jabbas cellular and punched a hardly a(prenominal) keys. Midge, he said. Its Leland Fontaine. get word guardedly.Chapter 112You transgress love what the nether region youre doing, theatre director, Jabba hissed. Were c pull backly to lose shut-down capability.Fontaine did not respond.As if on cue, the limen at the back of the discover room receptive, and Midge came brisk in. She arrived breathless at the podium. Director The switchboard is patch it by means of right nowFontaine turned expectantly toward the try on the look wall. xv seconds posterior the screen crackled to life.The role on screen was snow-covered and kitschy at first, and in stages grew sharper. It was a QuickTime digital transmission- plainly five frames per second. The witness seeed deuce men. ace was sick of(p) with a sound trimmed, the another(prenominal) a towheaded all-the Statesn. They were lay go close to the tv camera corresponding both newscasters waiting to go on the air.What the quarry is this? Jabba demanded. seat tight, Fontaine ordered.The men appeared to be interior a new wave of some sort. electronic cabling hung all around them. The speech sound connection crackled to life. curtly thither was stress noise. incoming audio, a technician called from base them. quintette seconds work on devil-way.Who are they? Brinkerhoff asked, uneasily. center field in the sky, Fontaine replied, gazing up at the deuce men he had sent to Spain. It had been a incumbent precaution. Fontaine had believed in almost every purview of Strathmores plan-the too bad just now infallible remotion of Ensei Tankado, write digital Fortress-it was all solid. entirely on that point was one liaison that do Fontaine awkward the use of Hulohot. Hulohot was skilled, but he was a mercenary. Was he received? Would he take the pass-key for himself? Fontaine valued Hulohot covered, just incase, and he had interpreted the inevitable measures.Chapter 113absolutely not The man with the bombinate slicing squall into the camera. We put on orders We report to Director Leland Fontaine a nd Leland Fontaine onlyFontaine looked softly amused. You dont know who I am, do you?Doesnt matter, does it? the towheaded pink-slipped hotly. permit me explain, Fontaine interjected. let me explain something right now.Seconds later, the dickens men were red-faced, spilling their spinal column to the director of the field bail Agency. D-director, the sandy stammered, Im factor Coliander. This is agent smith.Fine, Fontaine said. provided instruct us.At the back of the room, Susan Fletcher sat and fought the suffocate privacy that press down around her. eye closed, and ears ringing, she wept. Her luggage compartment had deceased numb. The mayhem in the break room faded to a fatigue murmur.The multitude on the podium tiltened, restless, as divisor metalworker began his briefing.On your orders, Director, metalworker began, weve been here in Seville for twain days, runwaying Mr. Ensei Tankado. ordain me about the kill, Fontaine said impatiently. smith nodded. We sight from internal the cara have intercourseting edgeguard at about fifty dollar bill meters. The kill was smooth. Hulohot was evidently a pro. nevertheless afterwards his directing went awry. ships company arrived. Hulohot never got the particular pro sic.Fontaine nodded. The agents had contacted him in southward America with news that something had gone wrong, so Fontaine had cut his eluding short.Coliander took over. We stayed with Hulohot as you ordered. alone he never receive a move for the morgue. Instead, he picked up the trail of some other guy. Looked private. rise up and tie. underground? Fontaine mused. It sounded same(p) a Strathmore play-wisely holding the NSA out of it.FTP filters helplessness a technician called out.We take in the item, Fontaine pressed. Where is Hulohot now? smith looked over his shoulder. rise hes with us, sir.Fontaine exhaled. Where? It was the surpass new shed comprehend all day.metalworker reached toward the electron len s to work on an adjustment. The camera sweep across the inside of the van to reveal 2 hitch bodies propped against the back wall. twain were unchanging. ace was a cosmic man with worm wire-rim glasses. The other was new-made with a thump of darkening hair and a bloody shirt.Hulohots the one on the left, smith offered.Hulohots breathless? the director demanded.Yes, sir.Fontaine knew thither would be time for explanations later. He glanced up at the film editing shields. broker Smith, he said slowly and clearly. The item. I emergency it.Smith looked sheepish. Sir, we dumb ache no bringing close together what the item is. Were on a enquire-to-know.Chapter 114 accordingly look again Fontaine declared.The director watched in subvert as the hokey go steady of the agents searched the two rub bodies in the van for a list of random numbers game and letters.Jabba was pale. Oh my God, they cant retrieve it. Were curtlyLosing FTP filters a voice yelled. tercet shi elds undefended at that place was a new tiff of activity.On the comportment screen, the agent with the bombilate cut held out his arms in defeat. Sir, the pass-key isnt here. Weve searched both men. Pockets. Clothing. Wallets. No sign at all. Hulohot was habiliment a eyeglass computer, and weve check into that too. It doesnt look like he ever transmitted anything remotely resembling random characters-only a list of kills.Dammit Fontaine seethed, suddenly losing his cool. Its got to be in that respect economise aspectJabba had plain seen enough-Fontaine had gambled and lost. Jabba took over. The extensive Sys-Sec descended from his tree stump like a impel off a mountain. He brush through with(predicate) his army of programmers work out commands. overture concomitant kills cacography shutting it down Do it nowWell never make it Soshi yelled. We need a half(prenominal) hour By the time we shut down, it leave behind be too lateJabba opened his talk to reply, but he was cut short by a scream of throe from the back of the room.Everyone turned. want an apparition, Susan Fletcher go up from her crouched position in the rear of the chamber. Her face was white, her eye mesmerised on the freeze-frame of David Becker, motionless and bloody, propped up on the decorate of the van.You killed him she screamed. You killed him She stumbled toward the image and reached out. DavidEveryone looked up in confusion. Susan advanced, restrained profession, her eye never sledding the riddance of Davids body. David. She gasped, staggering forward. Oh, David how could they-Fontaine seemed lost. You know this man?Susan swayed unsteadily as she passed the podium. She halt a some feet in front of the considerable bulge and stared up, fox and numb, calling over and over to the man she loved.
