Comment: No inconsistency here (Score 1) 564

There is no inconsistency in what you wrote. Students are failing basic science tests yet US science is in the pole position. Others have already provided the most likely explanation. There is an obsession with getting a management position but someone has to be creative in a science/research project.

Flamer has been out in the wild since cca. 2007, with a MS signed certificate, and the first IT security organization that decides to bring it to public attention is a Russian company, and the first removal tool is from a Romanian company. Right, because all of these antivirus companies are so dumb they cannot detect a 20 MB spyware pack on Windows machines for four years.

Flamer is out in the wild since cca. 2007, with a MS signed certificate, and the only IT security organization that decides to bring it to public attention is a Russian company, and the first removal tool is from a Romanian company. Isn't this a bit strange? Isn't it more likely that this NA-designed spyware targetting the Middle East was released with the tacit agreement of Western security companies and it only became known because the Russians, for some reason, decided they would not play the game? Microsoft being unaware for thw last few years that hundreds of computers are infected with a 20 MB spyware pack bearing a security certifice of their own? Come on...
