I just posted the Chinese factor. I thought they were always Chinese, though.
I remember when they hit the market, iobit seemed to come out of nowhere to be the darling of the service tech world. I saw people throwing it on every system they laid hands on, never having evaluated or researched it. It was like that game on Star Trek: Next Generation where you put on a headset and sucked up tokens with little funnels... turned out to be a mind control mechanism so someone could take over the ship without resistance.
Sounds like something the Chinese powers that be would want to accomplish, take over the "ship" without resistance.
