the only number you need to remember is one one just to show you can't afford to miss the one and only tool box. twelfth of may twenty seventeen overnight a dangerous computer virus has spread around the globe want to cry is the name of the cyber criminals have given the virus was which they blackmail their victims by blocking their computer data the ransom three hundred dollars to be paid in bitcoins. more than two hundred thousand computers on all continents are affected by this attack from the german rail network georgia bond to the ministry of the interior in russia and the japanese car manufacturer honda in great britain some hospitals even have to switch to emergency operational. how can one single nowhere
single tenuously paralyze companies hospitals and even intelligence services all over the world the answer has a name microsoft all the victims use the same software all of honorable in the same way all are dependent on one single company as is every state administration in europe. what are the consequences this is what we've the team of journalists from investigate europe wanted to find out the results are alarming. this is about the data of all citizens everyone is affected and the dependency is much deeper than just the. of microsoft word or excel almost every or for
a team from the town home to the vehicle registration office and the tax office works with software specially written for their purposes. these many thousands of special programs are written for the windows operating system. the more complex information technology becomes the deeper the state is trapped in the microsoft monopoly. no one knows this better than martin child will manage the german government's i t. for eight years. the burden and voice land isn't defacto popping it's from microsoft i mean i understood my course of product and it's been it's got guns when you go. microsoft media is that stored as a dusk to dawn it's an exam i just manage when the vitals and on the soft einsatz income divide he took all mentality microsoft for him but he and i love microsoft poke on the bush would send via dns question and server idea is that microsoft's
off to a lot of them and thus should lead to a least two i know virtual fusion upping its kite just by the end of it unless it's not martino that's once a has a lot of these already present a harvest does it up any fun i'd sit in here should i learn of the times i do admit the two are is you own the example. that has been developed in the cloud as in. our stay in the control is. the stuff of sinai ignited ima via top off money. in the large spiritual or tion is the shows my ninety physicians and their brothers and on. and you know if it's on implementing and the v.v. toy is mine i believe it is i don't feel like there's has been a good move in the gulf side of it. dependency is the result of a business principle with which the major software manufacturers and in particular
microsoft have created monopolies worldwide keeping the source code secret. modern software is written in programming languages the exact recipe of a program or an entire operating system is created the source code every i.t. specialist can follow the source code however the computer and its processes count so the source code has to be converted by a translation program into machine code but this can only be read and understood by computers. this is the source code for the command show hello world as taught in every beginner's programming course the same commands translated into machine code looks like this. microsoft makes the machine code available to its customers but nobody understands it however the source code is kept secret
by the company in order to protect itself from imitators this business model is called proprietary only the manufacturer is able to change improve correct and fix security gaps in the software but this means the user is completely at the mercy of the manufacturer for better or worse. all citizens data from text returns to fines flows through the state administrations large data centers. we visit one of these top security server parks in hamburg the exact location of which we are not allowed to reveal let alone fill however the fences and locks are no protection against the open flank microsoft. so. as i stated i was there he said i was on the side out of what i understand there are others. as i know i'm sure there's an eight hundred started going to let many women on the know it all community community got the one house is the status
of i don't seriously think that it's kind of hidden. with one side effects of. a legitimate convention and excellence and as this guy said the job. he did truth to this of adults who had microsoft's idea of i. agree that mines open tennis australia can also be all open source software is good but i see india is a propagator self. give it is that's a great question by the south here is obviously the software can all go off if one microsoft one has a lot of it. and if you are this you and it was a defacto mortar course of the good business yapping if i didn't see and listen we've got a little bit of a senior study again used up in the fun files a file to be in india listen to up the. us a living cell phone microsoft percentage that was on a school killing the stupidest of its own the microsoft eight cents and that's the same gun only has all the content stuck on most microsoft isn't that hot and also
all of these and it's going to this year of the divide on microsoft product line that limited by force of will to prevent i indefinable just a bit on an ocean i needed to go in oakland hundreds are i now i knew. his mission to smoke and the sake of the nation are also on of guys and it's even social. these alternatives have been around for a long time they're based on the fundamentally different principle called open source. in contrast to the proprietary software of microsoft and other companies open source software uses a source code that is publicly available. that's why hundreds of thousands of programmers around the world can improve it extended and fix bugs. the collective workforce of the swarm of programmers discovers and closes security. gaps and efficiently produces state of the art software including the world's most
widely used operating systems linux and. unlike microsoft windows linux is available free of charge. any organization or administration can customize it for its own purposes without asking the corporation for commissioning nevertheless most government team managers believe that in public administration there is no alternative to microsoft even though this is long since become a profitable industry. does this kind i cannot even get this from the many smart folks once they've done that like a business i'm one of theirs is not of their own windows it's in the end was done to all patients start on all the funnies up in these cards in the find this they don't need this in and it is going on the van and again as it does a lot of others will work later on in the at least on the zizzle as it's a toy on the light and sound of us that it's out now the target of us and us and our band and again with home us your thoughts ideas with of i as
a life order on incentive yet what it is to tool and what is guitar. that's what software is all missed under us voice has led to calls of national and status definition i guess and just uses and as my mike was of one of four yes one of the one that i sit and stand is the guns that interest me and stand with their feet on into the seats and just as it's even then i'd never heard it is very knowledgeable in by the business is that let's this in your shaft i'm biased. today open source programs can easily compete with microsoft products as the company open exchange shows. these are software so i just consider office parkade from microsoft as it's because. in this office that's actually just an industry flight from microsoft came here so much does. and i'm one of the best for that. ten minutes of i give up introduce less of the human. mind isn't that
time only so let's move to texas etiam been so kind of cool. so do most of us moms imagen dancing the comment on the phone also from i was on the verge it's a. permanent version of vertical mental phenomena someone via target. is kept in permanent work film and i know. the. doctors can be so busy ness and saying cling to us i was just on lots of fun events i office software system some unseen i was decked out furnished when up any stuff on them like an additional two mice none of that up front of me that's bad but it's got his business when it's a bus read up on the front of it or its. own still it comes in on the. notes and of the notes as if it's just a stick and. moment of a demon's i get it does but the end of the support is this is the as in for life
i seen the alone on benefit in the good thing is not was their goals this big it wasn't an unknown amount of money on us. was going to miss which of us is and for one for us it will depend. on and for the. iran nuclear deal was one seen as a major achievement of american diplomacy but that's no longer the case donald trump's decision to pull out of the deal has reopened a major international problem they have to analyze betrayed and the bursaries confused how should the world perceive. the united states can always had a tool to use in its tax on other countries.
economic sanctions or are often just the beginning another thing you like to do is place some military pressure on the countries a jury talking about. and there has to be an effort to demonize that country and the leader of that country. we have a responsibility for the home. and we need to make rules for the rest. because without us there will be chaos. join me everything on the all excitement show and i'll be speaking to guest of the world of politics sport this list i'm showbusiness i'll see that.
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy. let it be an arms race. spearing dramatic development only. exist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical of time time to sit down and talk. to the politics in washington not been driven by the fossil fuel energy lobbyist they could have gone. years earlier and those jobs would be in place generating good paying jobs in america would be part of a growing industry because they kowtow to those lobbyist they got stuck in the coal business which by the gas business which is a dodgy end for a lot of reasons going to be obliterated by chinese revolution in.
the use of open source software has long been standard practice for private corporations. the global giants of the digital economy such as facebook amazon google paypal only work with open source they would never give their competitor microsoft access to their information technology by using the software european states continually surrender to the old monopoly through contracts. in these microsoft and governments come to an agreement on the conditions whereby government institutions may use the software joins programs. the german ministry of the interior is legally bound to allow inspection of such contracts however the ministry has blackened all the essential parts like prices conditions and security requirements the reason given trade secrets as claimed by microsoft in other words
the corporation can decide what the public may learn about its dealings with taxpayers' money. with the framework contracts governments allow all state institutions from local authority to parliament to obtain software directly from microsoft resellers this is legally questionable because this type of treaty overrides european law. accordingly public authorities are prohibited from buying products and services exceeding the value of one hundred thirty five thousand euros from just one supplier there has to be a public invitation to tender the german government's head of i t p two but appears to have no problems with this how does he justifies circumventing public procurement law. in the. microsoft he said
microsoft coughed mission and done on and on them but. this is all as if i don't see fit in full partner in that development. and on the london history laws least of the stock in the idea. and some nice. d. and ot them. gotcha nothing to. its source and fuck you fuck if it must. expose them and often it is a stand up so good as you took a little you did on this photo you missed in hundreds on fatigue and first now as i will not microsoft made sense to microsoft it's. just kind of feel. you know. it's not that simple e.u.
legislation expressly prohibits the preference of individual companies in public. as well as the use of brand names and invitations to tender a lawyer specializing in i.t. and public procurement matures pops has been examining this practice for the past four years at the netherlands university of groningen so do framework agreements with microsoft violate e.u. law yeah yeah that's very clear it violates european law and when you ask organizations you know why are you doing this the people responsible for a tender they usually know that that file it's european law but they will say well even the european commission itself is doing it. how is it possible that. are breaking their own rules my colleague maria majority
from the journalist team investigate europe has been a long time correspondent in brussels and knows who to ask. ok who are we going to meet now and now we are going to meet. the sponsors of the entity inside if in. fact my cousin i was already told they are going to sign a new contract with microsoft next year so good luck to those in. the. next contract with microsoft and you already negotiating a new contract well just the plan is to go for a negotiated procedure with microsoft for the desk top layer. and for full for tender with a reseller. for microsoft doesn't the practice to negotiate this framework contract violate the rules of procurement which demands open competition no doubt there are different procedures foreseen by the pitch of materials and of course the procedure
is open court for tender but then the negotiated procedure is a procedure that exists in the rolls on. it's fully legal and the conditions are that there is only one provider that can provide this particular solution the technical solution so there is no other possibility and what we've seen is that we if we didn't do call for tender and open call for tender for provision we would land with microsoft anyway and it would be much more expensive because what they're doing now is negotiating a price list together with microsoft which gives us huge discounts well it sounds very reasonable but this actually means that they have a problem within their organization. because they are obviously locked in. they are in a optimal situation because they are so dependent on working with microsoft that they are even thinking that they can't function without the
microsoft software it says more about their own organization then. the topic of law because it basically means that they have internal problem that they have to fix but it doesn't mean that they can't. disregard for human life what does the procurement law exactly say well the procurement law describes. social situations in which you can ask for a brand name being locked in is not an excuse to disregard the procurement rules. there is another way in munich under the leadership of former mayor christie and the city administration has converted eighty percent of all marketers of computers to the open source operating system linux since two thousand and four the project
called limit was considered the greats. excess and was also copied and other european cities. in twenty twelve detail writer at the time head of economics in the city government negotiated with microsoft to relocate their german headquarters to munich in twenty four team writer himself became the mayor since then he's been working with the alliance of social democrats and conservatives to bring the city administration back into the arms of the monopolist at least last. am i. feel differently. and this man and i had business immediately on this is of i'd normally get on by. police and fire i was killing this for you i'll take it to our period as it causes passion for gale pushed into. the pitted and this and done in the final debate the mayor rejects the arguments of the opposition about independence and data security with the linux system and argues in his closing
words in a very personal way how this must be here. tom and when he does what he said seen as truth in the answer may provide shifts beginning in this ng by consequence really them a new president in full is clearly. trying to refrain. dimon is limited if he. can do it if he merely super's wilson here sitting down. it's to look at for microsoft even less doom for the file are going to storage and concerns it's not mentioned in the senate side four hundred give distances i'm going to get the stupidity of it as the youngest was no it was good last just as soon as you're eighty it was lucky enough to go into it or. it's fitted on windows to be very good if you start.
according to a survey the vast majority of city employees are quite satisfied with lima however the experts found that the i t. was poorly managed partly because the heads of departments were allowed to make their own decisions about how to use the programs but there was no fundamental technical problem as the previous head of munich's i t department told the industry news service. we can't interview the employees of the administration because they are not allowed to talk to us however an expert from the municipal department is prepared to talk to us anonymously so is there some truth in the claim that the open source system in the munich administration didn't work properly isn't it isn't touched them enough as it ought to still have a heart on it about it and cannot be for the long as. a lot of phones ominous if you don't switch and hit us quite sane thousand formula. very often a software in the past but as it only admit in. noise for logs distinguished even
for microsoft office does what it believes we are not the concern for lughnasadh convert or use of that we don't hender be done might flee or does what and we don't expose you in the dark and even more just for fun if the minute bugs aren't as kind take a show called just put it tick on for hundreds muscle. it's. pretty easy to show. and or. give up so that was acquitted so you wouldn't be. getting the sleep. microsoft. does but you know. it's microsoft which it. falls from sue me and. you know it's not going to do you know
a little of this. you know the incident book. to maximize their financial survival. down. yonks this is what happens to pensions in britain don't. watch kaiser report. across europe municipalities are taking their water supply back from private companies. with simple song events like company elsewhere though they invite private companies to take over the utilities anybody tell us. you've got. to go all. of us to quote them out.
for you then lift the bill brought up locals are ready to stand up for the basic human right of access to water it's about water but it's also over much more and more it's about the hurt and the redistribution. downwards we want our. twenty forty you know bloody revolution to crush the demonstrations going from being relatively peaceful protests to be creasing the violent revolution is always spontaneous or is it you know we're here. spilling you know to the former ukrainian president recalls the events of twenty fourteen. those who took part in this to do over five billion dollars to assist ukraine in these and other calls that will ensure a secure and prosperous and democratic. new
economic war is unfolding in the realm of education the right to education as being supplanted by the right to access to education its high education is becoming just another product that can be pulled from the sold but it's not just about education anymore it's also about running a business and what you good. could mean. want is. the place of students in this business model before college i was more and now i'm i'm extremely more high education for the new global economic wall. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president of something i want to be honest. that's
a good way to be for us this is what will befall us three of them all can't be good that i'm interested always in the waters about how. this should. thank you if. there were things i would say i'm not american but americans helped out really. world war two cures of the depression far united states is concerned prosperity of course from store. for the for all the whole world what it what and. historical rewrite ever since world war two to foment the cold war against russia against communism and.
it's report of a man who carried out. a night security forces. extremist views he was shot dead by police after killing one person and injuring several others. came down this road. holding a knife. in your opinion leaders refused to tell washington president. with one key adviser now saying he can't rule out sanctioning companies who do business with. another week of protests continuing.
