Scientists Are Worried About Sending Malware To Aliens

Scientists from the British Oxford University worry that mankind accidentally malware to aliens will send if we try to contact them to record. In September, voted the British research network for SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) to approach extraterrestrial life. For whatever message it must be exactly is not yet decided.

"The well-known example of a message is a series of pulses that show binary numbers, DNA, or a sketch of the solar system or the number of people," says Anders Sandberg from the Future of Humanity Institute at Oxford University during a British science festival. "But there appear to be several security issues. Language can hide a lot of information and we are afraid that we send malware to the aliens."

Now the British research network for SETI has partnered with Breakthrough Message Initiative, the audience is invited to determine what message should be sent there in space, and offers one million dollars for the best ideas, reports the Daily Telegraph. According to Jill Stuart from the London School of Economics, the initiative is important because it encourages humanity to look at themselves and decide how alien life will look against us.
