ACM Case Studies Discussion

  1. Can use of common cryptographic algorithms jeopardize a system's security, as they are more well-known to hackers as well?
  2. How pervasive are dark UX patterns?
  3. What is another example of medical implant risk analysis?
  4. Say you're a cloud computing provider, and you've also become aware of a vulnerability in some microcode, say, the Intel Spectre/Meltdown fiasco. Your Windows Server virtual environments need updated, but some of your customers are resistant and refuse to upgrade soon, even though it threatens other computers on the same physical host. How would you approach those resistant customers while still protecting your other good-willed customers?
  5. If a user is scammed, how much responsibility lies with the user themselves?
  6. At the end of the day, who makes the decision on whether something is ethical according to the code?
  7. Are there real world cases where ethical issues arise and become unavoidable without the complete termination of the software service?
  8. In the Dark UX example, the developer told their supervisor that the interface was misleading but was told not to do anything about it. The case studies suggest the developer was still partially to blame. What additional steps should they have taken?

  9. What are the consequences to violating a principle of the Code?

  10. What does one do in a situation like Diane's, where the team manager did not do anything to help the problem?

  11. In the case study involving medical implants, why is this case study given? Did anyone do anything wrong?

  12. Does the real issue with ACM Code truly fall under the intent of choices made by software engineers?

  13. Is there any global law system or any global organization that investigates and supervises these cases?

  14. From the case study (Autonomous Active Response Weapons), what Q Industries can do at the beginning to stop itself and other people to misemploy its technologies and ideas?

  15. Is software that helps some people but harms others ok? where do you draw the line?

  16. What governing forces hold programmers to this code?

  17. What are the consequences to violating a principle of the Code?

  18. What does one do in a situation like Diane's, where the team manager did not do anything to help the problem?
