I was going to blog about something else this week, but then I received this
spam email public service message, and I felt I ought to share this urgent warning with you. You know, before it’s too late.

Russia, China, and even countries like North Korea and Iran are suspected to have it. And one of them is likely to use it in the next 13 months or less.
