Calorie companies are a real thing. The next wars won't be nuclear, or cyber. They'll be ag.

Multinational food conglomerates like DuPont Pioneer and Monsanto have sizable security forces and highly efficient investigatory networks.

I gave up using a "real" AV after Microsoft Defender came out! Only detects 2 out of 5 viruses!

today’s inadvertent and erroneous publication of testing materials

They're testing the gullibility of their own bots? Or were they really testing how to sent markets into chaos by flooding lots of fake news?! Seems like hackers could weaponize this to crash markets. $2/share of AAPL is $10 billion dollars of value created out of thin air.
