Now it looks that MICROSOFT condoles that the nsa uses vulnerabilities, that they (nsa) find in MICROSOFT software themselves, for hacking and cracking home computers of citizens around the world.

Of course there is no collaboration whatsoever between MICROSOFT and nsa, because of the macho culture in both companies, one does not wanna be the underdog of the other.

The RANSOMWARE however is build with MICROSOFT technology, and the day zero exploit was stolen by the criminal hackers from the nsa, the nsa is only a victim
just like those many hospitals and government institutions around the world. MICROSOFT should have prevented the RANSOMWARE earlier by not misusing their update system but using it for the benefit of mankind.

The nsa only works for the American people but MICROSOFT works for money only, the RANSOMWARE is also for the money, therefore I think that MICROSOFT is responsible for the RANSOMWARE

Snowden is right by saying: if nsa had privately disclosed the flaw used to attack hospitals when they *found* it, not when they lost it, this may not have happened.

Its said its already fixed with an windows update of a month ago, but the victims of the ransomware did not do proper maintenance on their systems. So indeed microsoft can and could fix it, but to late, update could have been 2 years ago already, so its said

Linux offers more granular control over software and your OS, I can only assume that the growing need for Linux admins is due to the growing increase in security risk.

Russia was hit bad.

The undertakers of this Hack have no country or flag, likely.

Business, if Microsoft were seen to be TOO close to or in cooperation with the NSA or any other intelligence service it would harm very badly there international market and in practice this would shrink Microsoft's international business extremely fast potentially even leading to the bankruptcy of the company.

Why?.

Because Microsoft provide software and expertise to many nation's and not all of those nations are on friendly term's with the US or it's intelligence services, even those that are do not want NSA or any other foreign intelligence agency to have back door unregulated access to there secret's and government files held on computers mostly still running Microsoft.

So they have to work to a strategy which helps to tackle ransom-ware and other forms of cyber terrorism without being seen to be in cahoot's with one anther TOO much, what goes on behind closed doors is another matter entirely.

They should be working with the Linux foundation, not Microsoft.

I've got a Windows 10 system that auto-updates. The only problem is that the auto-update doesn't actually update correctly and leaves the screen black for several hours. As I have no ******* clue how Microsoft implements their update system, what KBxxxxxxxxx number of update actually causes the failure, and have no time to spend doing Microsoft's
work for them, it's easier to just rollback the update and disable all future updates.

I've gone through many of the other Windows support forums, and a good number of people are so fed up of Microsoft spyware/telemetry, auto-updates that they fear that an update might actually be downloading backdoors, that they disable auto-updating. Microsoft are partly to blame here. I spend an entire weekend trying to figure out why my system was sending 32K/minute of data to Microsoft servers. Turns out it was Nvidia's Geforce Experience with an application caused nvcontainer.exe that was sending this data stream.

Then the three-letter agencies go out looking for exploits and use them for their own purposes rather than inform Microsoft.

OK good point, and realistic, to my regret, could be the official and front politics of microsoft, but behind closed doors they do business all the time

I think I got a nice customized Windows 8.1 upgrade / update from the Windows Store, I mean specially customized for me (On my Windows LIVE ID [which contained my name by the way, but that would not be necessary]) did not work and did not look like Windows 8.1. How I know I did another computer that same day (other LIVE ID). First one all weird kind of problems, drove me crazy, I mean real crazy, got me hospitalized, I'm still crazy, second computer no problems

This looks more and more like a test to me, a catalyst to something much bigger in the future...

Lets face it through our alphabet agencies such as the NSA kind of deserve to receive ransomware considering the belligerent nature of there activities, not just against foreign governments, but against its own citizenry.


Hospitals and other institutions there to provide much needed services and amenities on the other hand, not so much.
