> Prior to the acquisition offer, Red Hat was valued at ~$20.5 billion. IBM is proposing to buy Red Hat for $34 billion, a premium of ~67%
> IBM could have invested in Red Hat stock at a much lower price, if the objective was simply to share in the expected profits of Red Hat, continuing its current business offerings. What IBM gains from its acquisition of Red Hat is control, and the ability to shape the direction of its software development efforts, to favor IBM’s own cloud services.

@gid I have a black Swissgear backpack that has lasted me for about 3 years, it was only about $20 CAD. It's also not too big for me being a petite person.

“The attackers also appear to be professionals, based on their way of handling their attack. They only use public third party services, and therefore did not need to register any domains or anything else that could leave a trail. The few email addresses we found during the investigation were also using trash email systems, giving the attackers a clean footprint” researchers added.
