Can any type of program break the subroutine on Data Mine?

AI programs can break any subroutine, so currently the programs that can break that subroutine are Crypsis, Darwin, and Atman.

AI Icebreakers can break any subroutine on any ICE, so Crypsis, Wyrm, Darwin and Atman all work.

Additionally, Data Mine has the sub-type "AP", so Deus X can also break the subroutine.

Just to point out that while all AI ice breakers are capable of breaking Data Mine, it's not because they've got the AI subtype. It's because they have abilities that break subroutines, irrespective of the type of ice the subroutine is on.

Compare Corroder:

Corroder wrote:
Break barrier subroutine


To Crypsis:

Crypsis wrote:
Break ice subroutine


Corroder isn't limited because it's a Fracter, it's limited because its ability specifically says its limited.

No subtypes in Netrunner have any inherent mechanics; they're all thematically-linked (e.g. Icebreakers which can break subroutines from Barriers only always have the Fracter subtype), and some of them are referenced by cards, but none of them have an inherent meaning.

I should point out that Kit, if she encounters Data Mine first, can break it as if it is a code gate because of her ability. Everything said in this thread (aside from the AP subtype) is also true of any other Trap card, like Howler or Whirlpool.

And it only takes 6 credits for Wyrm to break the Data Mine
