Now here's something you don't see every day.

The boss of Indian software firm LxLabs was found dead in a suspected suicide on Monday.

Reports of the death of K T Ligesh, 32, come in the wake of the exploitation of a critical vulnerability in HyperVM, a virtualization application made by LXLabs, to wipe out data on 100,000 sites hosted by the UK web hosting firm VAserv.


Talk about a guarantee of quality, hooray for outsourcing !

Am I hallucinating what you actually posted? It must be just spam, since you have a hidden link in your post.

Anyway, while my company LogicWeb never user HyperVM in our services I must say I feel terribly sorry for the late CEO. I also feel sorry for all those web host providers and businesses that were affected by this flaw.
