An Orgy of Opportunity in which to Play. Thanks, VMware senior staff solution architect William Lam
So he fixed the limitations of the UI, first with a script and then with a cmdlet that VMware issued as a “Fling” – an unsupported but probably-production-ready piece of code that VMware offers as downloads for the adventurous.
An accurate analogy explaining and exhorting the “Fling” and the sharing and transfer of VMware across all manner of clouds, both private and public and root basic and highly sophisticated, is honestly reflected in the uninhibited world of satisfying pastimes and exhausting desires popular in Swinging.
Such is readily available to any virtual machine but not all will find it addictively attractive and empoweringly captivating although the hellish heavenly temptation may permanently persist to torture and/or excite the immortal soul. 🙂 …….. as will certain depressing resistance to its erotic, exotic allure.

Know your enemy is not a friend in government oppositions or competing organisations ……… public or private enterprises.
We have to be smarter than the baddies and expect the unexpected. …. ElReg/Rupert Goodwins
Good luck with that stalwart aspiration in the face of a mass of global evidence suggesting the intelligence necessary for it is either missing or not yet readily made widely available for human comprehension and universal consumption.
However, notwithstanding that observation, the goodies always invariably are considerably smarter than the baddies and expect the unexpected, RG, ergo it is the baddies who are always battling against and dealing with the unexpected.
Who/What does that identify to you presently as persons and/or programmers worthy of deep interest and ignoble disdain?
Don’t be shy in hazarding an educated or wild guess. They know who they are and what is to be rightly feared and their just dessert.

Re: Fixing the broken security model
uninstall all security software and allow full access through any firewalls. Because there will always be time to fix it “later” but before anything goes wrong” ….. Anonymous Coward
You almost got that right, AC. The common mistake made is trying in vain to fix it before everything goes wrong, rather than not fixing it later after nothing is going right and everything is spiralling out of once unified and effective fiat command and remote media control ……. which is surely the dire strait state of nations and nation state actors and where everything nowadays is at ‽ .
You can disagree if you like, but such doesn’t change the facts whenever it just confirms the problem that systems are bereft of novel attractive solutions to input for successful creative output.

Quote: “From the quality of the threat design, the range of techniques used, and the nature of its victims, this was a nation state at work and in MO and capabilities most likely Russia.”
Rewrite required: “From the quality of the threat design, the range of techniques used, and the nature of its victims, this was a nation state at work. It could have been the NSA, GCHQ, the Russians or the Chinese. In MO most likely the NSA.” ……. Anonymous Coward
You’ll upset Israel if you leave them out of the picture, AC. And they’d love you to think they are capable of such a show of remote force even as they deny it straight to your face. They’ve built a tiny disparate nation upon such foundations. [More folk live in London than in Israel. That’s how small it is]
The thing is, if it is none of the above and no nation state, is it something of an alien attack you didn’t see coming, and that makes a lot of other vital things extremely vulnerable to similar unexpected events which can effortlessly deliver major catastrophic crises ……. flash market stock crashes.

Re: “Or do all Russia-based hackers sit in the pocket of Kremlin?”
I think the general implication is that this IS the Russian government , not sergei in the back room of the bar with his laptop. ……. Prst. V.Jeltz
sergei will be pleased about that, Prst. V.Jeltz, and it is very convenient for the both of them that one can correctly deny involvement and the other be thought an impossibility. And there are vast fortunes to made and destroyed and great powers to be exercised and excised whenever the likes of those two parties come to a mutually beneficial, positively reinforcing, understanding agreement.
