Got pulled over by the State Boys in Blue last night on the way home after watching the Bruins Game. He looked like he was still in high school. Said I was doing 80 in a 55mph zone which if I’m correct is a 65mph zone. He said don’t do that.

He must have felt bad for you after having to watch THAT Bruins game

I thought those were belonging to your department. You're showing - once again - how ready you are for a topic's discussion. (Not at all.)
On top, your idea of software security must be utterly vague, if at all existent.

I bet you have a job in software-marketing where cocaine-induced hallucinations are the(!) daily happenstance.

The government running everything? On which type of OS? You must be living in a fantasy...

A solution to me would look like this: Taking software vendors (such as Microsoft, Google & Apple) responsible for their open walls, i.e. security flaws. Of course, this also counts for cloud-based software services of any kind.

You seem to have no idea, how fucking qickly the software market would change then!

It's only a problem if you have a solution.  I'm all for diversifying risk down from 85% market share... just tell me how you want to do it.

At some point, all IT is a national security threat. If the government took over all of the MS government servers... would the security threat change?  Would you feel better with the government running everything?  

I look forward to your insightful solution.

All else I said can be verified easily via statistics and M$'s policies & tariffs.

I won't argue any further with any happy idiot M$ user, much less corporate or governmental incompetenzo.

In case you need to know more, you just have to study the subject, which isn't hidden or apocryph at all, as it's all online.

The upstream Linux related bug was fixed by the open source community within one day. - Who uses Windows and Outlook and Active Directory is slave to the company (MS) and their bugs which enable 98% of computer hacks worldwide and most often aren't fixed at all. Instead, MS is gaining by putting the fault on their users. What a complete hoot.

Nice try, NYT.


Hard to know if this is a perspective shared by others, since it’s not a topic I understand. Anyone else want to tell me more?

The thing I find intriguing is that Microsoft is paying someone to work on PostgreSQL, which competes with Microsoft's SQLserver - the biggest for-pay database manager. It's like they want to tap into the opensource world to give them ideas or something.

PostgreSQL has been part of Azure for years.

Did One Guy Just Stop a Huge Cyberattack?

A Microsoft engineer noticed something was off on a piece of software he worked on. He soon discovered someone was probably trying to gain access to computers all over the world.




The thing I find intriguing is that Microsoft is paying someone to work on PostgreSQL, which competes with Microsoft's SQLserver - the biggest for-pay database manager. It's like they want to tap into the opensource world to give them ideas or something.
