Over the past year.
Debt -- every major bank in the US and most of major banks the world are are -- are working on these issues.
It's really thought maybe these recent -- -- -- new technology needed.

What are they -- -- about what should they know that they don't know those people that don't -- a -- get it.
They don't know that they effort very dirty and their network they you know a lot of -- -- -- -- that there are various state of denial.
They unit because they're not that Brooke that it is expected eighty attack is bigger disruption act harder but -- -- that they and other web site.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Contract is harder to be it and I -- -- entity and in I don't think that the wanna be paying.
