Re: Is Kaspersky Crazy? I don't think kaspersky is crazy, but they are sensationalizing - which sadly is sometime what you need to do to get people to wake up and realize the problem...
Based on the multitude of incompetent or naive IT people I have personally encountered doing stupid if not luticris things with everything ranging from duct tape to thousand-dollar enterprise firewalls - I know there are critical systems that are not protected, or once were protected but then compromises were made, or 3rd parties came in, and now all bets are off.
The fact remains, there are things that we have come to depend on, that are truly critical systems, that should simply not be connected to the Internet, EVER - sadly, people still don't get this.
Don't even get me started on this whole "lets put everything in the cloud" mentality - the end result is the same, problems on a larger scale.

Just like the pharma and medical industries.
If human diseases and computer viruses could be effectively eliminated, that would be entire multi-billion dollar industries just evaporating into obsolescence overnight.
Not good for the stock price at all.
