...Most recently, there have been concerns over its computer systems' vulnerability, and Chinese hackers have possibly stolen classified data related to the project....
Most people here...
Most other people...
most people care...
A self-appointed spokesperson for "most people"?
and what about the tens of thousands of UPSes, printers, KVMs, IP cameras, thermocouples and other embedded crap all which only responds to SSL v3 ?...
Once the RFC "passes", they are out of standard.
I had to replace my 11-year-old wireless access point because it did only SSL3 and my browsers refused to connect to it in their default configuration. Even though the firmware in the access point is upgradeable, Netgear stopped supporting that unit long ago.
So what about all the devices that are not upgradeable? Well, the first thing is not to expose them to insecure networks....
Now, when you read a headline here that is more provocation than fact, you will know the reason may be to stir things up on twitter and facebook. It's part of
...Microsoft has not yet given us any guarantees that we will not have to pay for subscriptions in future...
One Microsoft exec did say that Windows 10 was the start of "Windows as a Service" (WaaS). The resulting uproar caused Microsoft to backpedal quickly from the remark.
But we now know what is on Microsoft's mind for Windows in the future.

There are many, many people ion this planet who are so self-absorbed, so oblivious to the world around them, that they regularly put others at risk.
At least those who walk into streetlight poles while texting hurt only themselves.
It appears that Windows slows down Windows!
I don't know what Microsoft does inside Windows, but over time Windows always seems to be unable to get out of its own way.
It's going to take locking some of these idiots up for a while until they learn.
Yup. As much as I am against regulating the drones, too many drone operators are doing stupid things.
Incidents such as this one, and the increasing number of close calls at major airports involving drones, are making me re-evaluate my opinions about drone regulation.
Too many drone operators are putting public safety at risk in order to have their fun.
What's it going to take before these idiot drone operators come to their senses? A two-hour delay in fighting a fire that allows a fire to go from contained to out-of-control? The crash of an airplane with 300 passengers on board? What?
... I don't know if I would say that anyone *DESERVES* malware...
Point taken. It was a poor choice of words on my part. Thanks for the correction.
imo, anyone who blindly accepts the default installer options gets the malware they deserve.
