Y'know, I was just composing a followup with that same URL in it. ;)

Also noted:

        SolarWinds hides list of high-profile customers after devastating hack

I believe we're now approaching a situation where the Ian Fleming rule applies:

        "Once is happenstance.  Twice is coincidence.  Three times is
        enemy action."


I'm sure our intel folks are hard at work too :)

That said instead of "enemy".  Think "opportunity".  Let's say you have 3 acquaintances all blindfolded about to get hit by a train and you have the ability to only save one **if you choose**.  Do you let all 3 get hit to be fair or do you save 1 and hope maybe someone else saves the other two?

Sometimes it is nothing more than that.
