  • The term Black ICE was popularized by William Gibson in his short story "Burning Chrome", which also introduced the term cyberspace, and his subsequent novel Neuromancer. Black ICE refers to ICE (Intrusion Countermeasures Electronics) that are capable of killing the intruder if deemed necessary or appropriate; some forms of black ICE may be artificially intelligent.
  • Black IC (pronounced like black ice) is a term used in the pen & paper game Shadowrun for dangerous intrusion countermeasures used in electronic devices.
  • Black ice is a term for ice that forms on the ground as a result of a car's exhaust freezing instantly to the ground. It can only happen below 10 degrees Fahrenheit. The ice is invisible further away than inches, hence the name black. It is most common in traffic jams, which, handily, it also causes.
