Point Away! Point Away!

At Quintrex, there were some customers who were multiple versions 'behind' the current version. There was never a clear-cut explanation for 'why' that was except... the customer didn't upgrade as the CDs (yes - we shipped 3 physical CDs: 1 for the PC applications, 1 for the Supplemental PC applications, & one for the iSeries (AS/400) software) were shipped to them. That situation came to mind when I read this article - Microsoft Blames NSA for ‘WannaCry’ Cyber Extortion - Software maker sent patch 2 months ago for flaw used in large-scale ransomware - which states that the NSA had the patch 2 months ago for the 'WannaCry' cyber extortion, but it was never applied.

Hmmm.
