The director looked worried when Agent 00111 walked into his office. “We have just discovered an enemy agent in the line of communication between you and Agent 11000. He’s been changing about 30% of the binary code symbols that are passed through him. I’m afraid that much of the work that you and Agent 11000 have been doing has gone down the tubes!”
