ISTR someone recently pointing out that the systems used by US power
companies ran MS software which was among that targeted by the recent
exploits, and wondering if there was any connection with the power
outage.

The number of viruses arriving in my email had dropped right off, but
has suddenly shot right up again - and there's been another major
power outage now, knocking out the London Underground with three
quarters of a million passengers on board.

If these events are connected, maybe there will be some legal action...
