Mr Red BS: Google outage - call me a luddite (22) RE: BS: Google outage - call me a luddite 19 Dec 20

The hack of 18,000 US organizations may require an elimination of a microsoft Operating system and install a different one alltogether?

Hardly, the portal was a software app - presumed running on Windows, though it might more likely have been Unix and mainframes because this was big boy stuff. So Linux ain't gonna cut it, and serious computer users don't Apple it.

I think we have long moved on from Next even though the first WWW browser was written for such a "Steve Wozniak child". By Tim Berners-Lee himself.

The latest news I have is that they are not ready to blame Russia specifically - yet. Though the odds do look to be shortening with every news report.

As if the US wouldn't do anything as underhand, like Stuxnet ie. Or Israel, or China or India against Parkistan (look up the SG scam that lasted 15 years till this year), and I would bet on Parkistan being about as squeeky clean as ISIS in the cyber wars. North Korea?

Lets face it, it is messy out there.

Meanwhile - back on topic. Why did Goggle need an update? Percieved vulnerabilities or vulnerabilities found by others? Call me paranoic, but they ain't gonna tell you - are they? Well not the real story.
