Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Updated Here's a good one. The latest UK tech news from ZDNet UK, featured on AltaVista, currently includes a story laying into CMGI. Unfortunately, AltaVista is owned by CMGI.

The story roundly criticises CMGI and its sordid share price and asks why Compaq let its stake the company drag down its results. "Why didn't Compaq just sell shares a little bit at a time? With a writeoff approaching $2bn, it's pretty clear that Compaq should have reduced its 13 per cent stake in CMGI a little earlier," the article states. Even better, it states that AltaVista will never IPO.

Well we have to applaud CMGI's strength of character, promoting criticism of itself on its own site. Bravo. We always thought it was a blinkered, power-crazed conglomerate. Then of course, there is always the chance that it just hasn't noticed yet.

Check it out here. And please tell us as soon as it disappears, because we have a handy screenshot to post.

Update

Because of AltaVisa's method of IDing stories, the CMGI piece is no longer showing at the URL above. So, here is a screenshot for you. ®
