Microsoft's Windows warning: Hackers hijacked software updater with in-memory malware

An interesting accusation made to ZDNet.....

"Although this article is titled, "Microsoft Windows warning", the malware has nothing at all to do with Windows. It is merely another attempt to smear Windows. You people have no shame."

It really is laughable as the majority of articles on ZDNet are biased being pro Microsoft whilst being anti Apple and Linux on a frequent basis.

Of course I am prevented from making comment on this article as I have been banned from ZDNet for telling Ed Bott some home truths.

For anyone who cares about their SECURITY and PRIVACY, Windows 10 is NOT a solution.

Another one of ZDnet's hypocrisies is downplaying ReactOS:

Microsoft HATES the idea of an open source OS which can run the Windows API better than WINE. Because Microsoft's only ever cash cow was their proprietary set of APIs...

Wow, is ReactOS back in the saddle? Last time I looked at it, the thing was shutting down. That article is from 2008.
