Oh my god, it must be a conspiracy!

Have you considered that these press outlets may find it troublesome to
report these details in full? Have you considered that the reporters working
on these stories understand these details themselves?

A number of Australian news sources have got it perfectly correct,
mentioning Microsoft, IIS and even the cunning differences between this and
Code Red.

Or... Is that evidence of a global Microsoft-owned media conspiracy, too?

  already know, and we're already bored off our tits at it. ]
