The article got out of its way to paint JetBrains as "obscure" (changed now, but the damage is done) - implying JB is some sort of shadowy Russian company working with the FSB to hack good ol' American companies.
Then you get idiots like this:
Look at the picture the 'newspaper of record'' NYT choose to include in their BS story accusing #JetBrains, (one of the most customer-oriented companies btw) of somehow being complicit in the #SolarWinds hack.
Yep, just casually throw the Russian flag in there because why not? The original headline even referenced JB being a Russian company, capitalizing on the fact that in the heads of many Americans, Russian == up to no good.
wtf #OpenBSD ? If his isn't some security by obscurity right here, not sure what is. What does this achieve?
