The Ultimate Kronos Group was the target of a Ransomware attack in Late 2021 coincidentally at the same time the Log4Shell vulnerability was disclosed. Kronos has not disclosed how the ransomware got into their environment, nor has it been revealed who might be behind the attack. Original estimates were that Kronos would be able to restore the impacted systems and be back online in a few weeks. Now, a bit more than a month later, there have been no real updates on the situation and many organizations are still feeling the effects.

We have written several articles on Apple and their abuse of the patent system including a recent patent that is really nothing more than an attempt to undermine all competition for both the smart phone and any operating system that utilizes OpenCL. Both of these patents (one that has attempted to patent the list and the other on the methods used to implement OpenCL) are exceptionally harmful to the consumer and the market. In the case of the OpenCL patent we find it very odd that they would patent something they submitted to Kronos as an open standard and now patent it. They are doing exactly what they claim Motorola and Samsung are doing with their standards essentials patents.
