      Woody this is going on in your corner of the world, very sophisticated and scary.

      I gather from the Ars Technica article that this new Platinum malware, Titanium, has not been detected “in the wild” yet. So it might be another Bluekeep-like sleeper.

      Or, being — supposedly — so very sophisticated, it’s out there already, infecting computers, but so subtly no one has noticed yet…

      Ok seems if a text label is not added the link is not being used as a label. IIRC this was not always the case>>>😠

      OK and to confuse matters more the first visible link was NOT added as a link just pasted in. 🀯

      Wavy, I still can see the two links (arstechnica.com and securelist.com) you included in your original entry, at the top, and also the repeated securelist.com link in the entry you added just below mine. So everything here looks fine to me.

      Only because you don’t know what is missing 😁.

      from the
      article. 😦
      the link got lost

      There should have been two more sets of links in this portion, they did not show up. It may have ‘something’ to do with not assigning a text label to the link. Weird stuff happens.
