amanfromMars  …… citing an unfortunate presidential gaffe on https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/biden-vows-defend-democracy-globally-days-rolling-over-russia-are-over
Sleepy Joe digs deep into a rich old dumb presidential vein which surely has many questioning his grasp on reality and the present state of his sanity/current mental stability. Surely his White House aides are supposed to be ensuring his condition is not general knowledge? It certainly doesn’t bode well for the future whenever they fall so badly right at the first hurdle.
Does not …… “American leadership must meet this new moment of advancing authoritarianism, including the growing determination of China to rival the United States and the determination of Russia to damage our democracy,” – Joe Biden ….. Washington D.C.Feb 04, 2021
…… mirror these earlier bumbling mumblings …..“For every fatal shooting, there were roughly three nonfatal shootings. And, folks, this is unacceptable in America. It’s just unacceptable. And we’re going to do something about it.” — George W Bush … Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, May 14, 2001
“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” — George W. Bush …. Washington, D.C., August 5, 2004
Word on the Hill is, Joe, you’ll make no friends but a whole raft of new powerful, faceless enemies whom you cannot ever defeat and who will swiftly and utterly destroy your administration if you continue attacking and damaging democracy with United States advancing authoritarianism.
And it is more than just odd and extremely disturbing and disappointing that you and your team, flying the Stars and Stripes and playing the Great Game for Uncle Sam, don’t realise that.

Ladies and Gentlemen,
The eternal difficulties one has in trying to ensure an exclusive beneficial proprietary intellectual property advantage via the creation and maintenance of secrets rather than the pioneering sharing of novel superior overwhelming intelligence will always remain to blight one’s progress and result in inevitable defeat and eventual exfiltration of that which was thought and desired to be a secret. And in some cases the damage done to one is greatly multiplied whenever one discovers the secret one thought to be exclusive, and which was so jealously and zealously guarded, was long ago known to both the competition and the opposition.
Such is very much the nature of the worlds of today and tomorrow which are completely different places and spaces from any of those of yesterday.
And with the deeper, and oft darker knowledge that is being so quickly uncovered and discovered by so many today, just by virtue of them looking for answers to certain specific questions, …… and which incidentally do not actually need to be replied to, for such an omission can very well be all the admission needed that a vulnerability and weakness has been found, and is framed in the unanswered question, ….. it can easily be a fact that it is not a foreign power at play but a home grown source with a disturbing force able to be exercised.
The following nugget in reply to a recently reported hack is worth considering as being representative of nearly all of the major concerns that have been voiced in the article this comment is in reply to. ……. and the posit here is that such an intrusion and exfiltration is practically impossible to have any effective defence against ….. which must be certainly worrying to more than just a chosen few, methinks. However, it is the way it is, and that path can be easily followed with similar results replicated, albeit with them revealing the secrets held by others so targeted.

It is best, and one would do extremely well to realise, that such is the advanced and forever advancing and improving and constantly changing nature of that
beastly daemon/anonymous invisibility which is of particular concern and/or peculiar interest to all here now, and those others who be batting and battling so valiantly in this instance on SolarWinds’ Orion network management products’ behalf, one can fully expect, whenever such trialling instances are recognised as being simply effective and especially successful, much more of the same impacting and extracting all manner of worth from many other select, highly valued targets …. with the deeper scope and vaster scale of the operation enhanced and expanded and elevated by sending meticulously crafted rather than maliciously crafted messages to any number of such queues.
Microsoft and Microsoft Message Queue technology is not so much a critical vulnerability to exploit and export, although that is not to say that others might not see it that way and beg to differ and try to prove their point of view valid, it is much more a convenient feature for SMARTR Applicable Program Use.
And if one can believe all of the reports on such developments as we read about here, one has to marvel at the tenacious ingenuity of those practically unknown Russians and Chinese routinely blamed for such hacks without ever a shred of evidence being presented for validation. How do they do that so well ‽ .
