Alpine Linux 3.15 bids a fond farewell to MIPS64 support – The Register


As the US government targets Darktrace personnel as witnesses for Autonomy founder Mike Lynch’s forthcoming criminal trial, it’s also seeking extra evidence from internal Autonomy whistleblowers.

News broke last weekend that US prosecutors were demanding disclosure of documents, emails, and chat logs from infosec firm Darktrace’s CEO, Poppy Gustafsson. Prosecutors want her, among others, to appear as a witness at the trial of Mike Lynch – an early investor in Darktrace – and ex-VP Stephen Chamberlain.

Lynch and Chamberlain are accused of fraudulently bulking up Autonomy’s reported revenues, deceiving Hewlett Packard (as it was called in 2011) into buying Autonomy for $11bn. HP later wrote down the British software company’s value by $8.8bn, crying fraud as it did so. Among other things, the US alleges Autonomy presented itself to the world as a “pure play” software company while generating a chunk of its profits from hardware sales that weren’t revealed in its public accounts.
