It is not for the first time that we found ourselves in the company of wolves again, just 2 days ago around midnight. The howl on the wire is that Microsoft are considering acquiring one of the most vulnerable companies on earth (Yahoo.com). Its not the money that amused the gaggle, it was the fact that half a dozen malicious hackers could take the company down any time they wanted to and yet the target was still being valued at $40Billion.
Surely, the world has gone mad!
Can you think of another $40Billion company that could be taken out so easily? Why it would take an army to disarm most multi-national corporations. Not two dozen hands on one dozen keyboards?
Not green command lines and electronic characters pinging back and forth between IP addresses.
Brand Killer Robots asks, Is Yahoo really worth $40Billion - when in the hands of hackers?
