You may have heard last month’s rumor of Internet “kill switch” in case a critical cyber attack takes place. Although this rumor turns out to be too much, there are now seven unknown individuals who are holding the keys to the internet. These seven cyber-guardians will be responsible for rebooting the web in the aftermath of cyber attack. While locked deep in the US bunker, these trustees from around the world received their keys.
