When stuff like this happens you never know where the truth is… I’m not sure what they call them in spy venacular but it’s the sort of thing that makes a spy movie. Not exactly a full sleeper but someone who acts in the behalf of the mission with some plausable deniability… I’m scared shitless that some 3rd party is going to infultrate systems I depends on. Back in the day we just paid the IBM and Microsoft tax but now that’s impossible.
