Quite a long term extensive attack of countries and embassy's.
Starts at around the 18min mark to 40+ min. mark.

Overwhelming multi-prong attack possibility is China? Russian Mafia?
My bet is on China.

Share your thoughts. Was floored at the multitude of vectors that was used over a 5 year mission.

Whoever is smart enough, and so well coordinated, to pull of such a virus, would probably put another nation's language in the code comments, so that it would look like it was from some other nation. Just saying.
