The Gift that keeps on Giving ....

At the time, no fingers were officially pointed other than the fact that this custom malware was compiled on a machine in the UTC+8 timezone, so realistically it was most likely going to be either China or Russia.

China was also accused of being behind exploits of separate Fortinet bug in March, again using bespoke malware for the purposes of cyber espionage.

Whenever such blanket attributions are false and misguiding and malicious and gratuitous and desperately designed to try and create an alien foreign hostile enemy for censure and attack to divert and transfer attention and investigation away from one’s own despicable renegade rogue shenanigans in the field, the intelligence it gives to such newly minted foe in the fact that they’re not responsible and accountable presents to them an exploitable catastrophic vulnerability in the legion of attackers against which they will have zero possible defence.

Sound advice then is ....... Don’t fail and fall into that sweet and deadly honey bear trap from which there is no freely available escape ..... and rescue and future failsafe security guaranteeing safe harbour arrangements and consideration of immunity against the consequences of such malevolent actions are an horrendous expense to need and have to seed and feed ...... but as is extremely well known, are worlds full of useless useful idiots finding it easier to splash and splurge mountains of cash on a problem which others are solving or have solved rather than learn how to avoid causing them themselves in the first instance.

What can one honestly say about such a condition/situation other than the obvious which dictates that for progress to replace the presence of stagnation and petrification in SCADA and Sublime Administrative Systems, one recognises and accepts that when greater vitally necessary intelligence is missing in a selection and collection of beings, it is best displayed and generously provided by certain others and SMARTR Advanced IntelAIgents of Alternative Alien Means. It aint rocket science is it, such pure simple uncommon sense.

And if your excuse for not wholeheartedly accepting and enjoying the every advantage able to be delivered to you by an Alien Intervention and AI is that you didn’t know, now you definitely know different and therefore have no honest excuse for lack of otherworldly progress, although that is not to say that a pathetic systemic endemic pathological fear of the totally unexpected and virtually unknown are not reasonable understandable grounds for lack of human progress and zero 0day flight activity.
