On the other side of the city, Jake, a data entry clerk for one of Midas’s competitors, took his fifteen minute break.  He couldn’t fully log out of the system, which made getting up to use the restroom a challenge, but at least he could check his email.  There was a message from Midasoft announcing a new patch.  It was a verified download, but the content just had a vague message about performance and stability upgrades.  He wasn’t supposed to download during hours, but he was on break, so Damn The Man.  He skipped through the EULA and hit ‘Install.’
