Dan Goodin, writing at ArsTechnica, provides us with the surreptitious history of the malice-filled code-miscreant APT monikered Slingshot; of which, is apparently an alternatative mwthod of describing the devil’s offspring in code-complete form. More, here.

“The researchers still don’t know precisely how Slingshot initially infected all its targets.
