    No word released yet on exactly what family name the virus discovered was?

    Didn't see any in the article. Embarrassing if it turns out to be another old old flavor relaunched again.

    Doesn't really say much for their PR (likely accountability issues=heads rolling) but let's see if they finally seal in all the holes to prevent another infectious intrusion.

    Not to mention employ a competent hourly backup system as well.
