Re: [SECURITY] [DLA 3690-1] intel-microcode security update

We shant discuss the Fatal Flaw of Electronics.
Nor warnings given decades ago...

However, Debian can never be secured.
No OS can. Nothing Electronic can be secured.
Nothing codependent on Electronics can be secured.

The Golden Rule of Electronics Engineering gets broken all of the time.

You may quote me.
