Hackers will be unable to attack Web sites protected by a new security system unless they can change the laws of physics, according to Naoto Takano, chief executive officer of Scarabs, a Japanese company.

The company claims that it has developed a hard disk with two heads that prevents disk files published on the Web from being altered by hackers.
