Google under threat… from “sharks”!!

shark attackInternet giant Google is reinforcing its underwater data cables to protect itself from Shark attacks. The company’s fiber-optic cables in Pacific Ocean are wrapped in the Kevlar coated material partly in order to keep them safe from the Shark’s, Dan Belcher, Google product manager, explained at a Google Cloud Roadshow event.
According to an international media report, in 1987 shark attacks caused failure of four segments of such cable. An experimental cable placed in 1985 was discovered to have shark teeth embedded in it. The behavior has been observed more recently, with footage from a submersible uploaded in 2010. This footage shows a large shark clamping its jaws around a thick cabling.
Sharks are trying to disrupt fiber cables because they are drawn by the magnetic fields generated by the high voltage running through the cables. Sharks have an ability, called electroreception, to detect electromagnetic fields. So, now, Google’s and world internet’s security is under attack from Sharks! How about someone calling Spielberg and asking him for tips from his “Jaws” days!?
