“I think we should look at this from the military point of view. I mean, supposing the Russkies stashes away some big bomb, see. When they come out in a hundred years they could take over… In fact, they might even try an immediate sneak attack so they could take over our mineshaft space… I think it would be extremely naive of us, Mr. President, to imagine that these new developments are going to cause any change in expansionist policy. I mean, we must be… increasingly on the alert to prevent them from taking over other mineshaft space, in order to breed more prodigiously than we do, thus, knocking us out in superior numbers when we emerge! Mr. President, we must not allow… a mine shaft gap!” ~ General Buck Turgidson

Researching and enumerating

  • Security and privacy and threats to searchers (users of a search engine), hence search engines themselves are also listed as adversary.
  • Search rank spam and fraud threats to search engines.

The two are intertwined as many of the blackhat SEO techniques can also be used to fool users for more nefarious purposes.
