Space ransomware

In 2050, first stations on moon and probably mars will exist. As communication is the core of current and future life, here lies also the weakness. The complexity to establish relyable and stable communication to inter-space stations is huge and is an interesting target for espionage and targeted modification of important communication packages. The one who controls the communication channels, controls the non-earth stations. Critical information such as research data can be exchanged directly into money by criminal groups by tapping the "wires".

Marcelo again 2050 is too soon, at least 2100 for statios on moon or mars, and for the criminal groups wont be lucrative, drugs prostitution etc is not lucrative market when we are talking about 100 astronauts 06 Feb 2019
Sam Marcelo I don't know if that is entirely true. The prediction of people travelling through space in the early 2030s is probable, and that means that if they are to travel, there will need to be locations for them to visit. 06 Feb 2019
