In processing, the phenomenon when a planned instruction cannot execute in the proper clock cycle, or clock tick, because the hardware it is running on cannot support the combination of instructions that are set to execute in the given clock cycle, causing resource conflicts. For example, a structural hazard would occur if a processor tried to use the same memory port for both instructions and data. Structural hazards commonly are overcome by pipelining MIPS instruction sets.
- Structured Data
Data that resides in a fixed field within a record or file is called structured data. This includes data contained in relational databases and spreadsheets. Characteristics of Structured Data Structured data first depends on creating a data model – a model of the types of business data that will be recorded and how they will […]
A routine that doesn’t actually do anything other than declare itself and the parameters it accepts. Stubs are used commonly as placeholders for routines that still need to be developed. The stub contains just enough code to allow it to be compiled and linked with the rest of the program.
- stub network
A stub network is an internal network, usually a LAN (Local Area Network) that carries data packets only among local hosts. Data on a stub network is destined for an endpoint located on that network. Network traffic on a stub network is local in that it doesn’t travel off the internal network.

Stuxnet is a family of cleverly written malware worms that primarily target SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquistition) control systems for large infrastructures such as industrial power plants. The original Stuxnet worm was first discovered in 2010, and numerous variants of Stuxnet have been identified since then, with most targeting organizations in the country of […]
