Starting at around midnite last night, Telstra crashed their primary, secondary and management servers.
Any customers using telstra for DNS were outaged for a significant time today more than 8 hours.
Here is a discussion about the problems – http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies-archive.cfm/1492786.html
Last weekend popular Australian broadband industry site whirlpool.net was hacked.
The server is outsourced to bulletproof , perhaps bullets bounce but internet attacks seem to penetrate OK.
The whirlpool owner had to post online an apology, and request all users change their passwords.
Now this doesn’t sound good for an online only brand. I understand its a free forum, but the owner is tying to build an asset, and he has clearly damaged his brand.
Internet security is a game BrandProtector is very serious about. We even include internet security in our SLA.
You need more than just firewalls, which allowed the hack above.
- We consult with you upfront, and have very strict standards, which stop and mitigate most hacking attempts.
- We also do intrusion detection for every client. So we can detect the hack and block it as it occurs.
- We have solutions that also prevent DoS (denial of service attacks).
At Brand Protector we’ll make sure you never get hacked.
