Dangerous dependency - the Microsoft dilemma
The Wanna Cry virus was a wake-up call: In May 2017 the cyber-attack with the blackmailing virus affected hundreds of thousands of computers in more than 100 countries. Hospitals, public administrations, businesses, even secret services were affected - how was this possible? The answer was proprietary software prone to attacks, provided by one company. The research by Harald Schumann and the Investigate Europe team indicates that EU public tender legislation is bypassed, public authorities are vulnerable to cyber-attacks and technical development is slowed down. The documentary has been aired on German tv ARD and is presented in an English language version. Harald Schumann of Investigate Europe will be present and introduce the film. http://www.daserste.de/information/reportage-dokumentation
