They could have said unspecified/yet-to-be-investigated internal
technical failure(s). But when they quoted an specific failure, their
communication(the PR, not the [email protected] report) was trying to benefit
from being specific, which is known to gain more trust. That comes
with a responsibility to be precise and opens it to scrutiny by the
technical community.
