RE: ABOVE.NET SECURITY TRUTHS?
A thought just came to me. My experience with above.net, and exodus.net, leaves me to KNOW that a certain exodus engineer's wife works as an engineer at above.net. Reading the quote at http://www.cnn.com/2000/TECH/computing/04/28/fbi.abovenet.idg/index.html Quoted: "Vixie says the company has speculated widely as to the motive for the attack and concluded that it could have emerged from one of two "completely useless categories." One category includes competitors that the company took a customer away from, disgruntled former employees or customers who had been disconnected because they were spamming. The other category, said Vixie, includes "someone who has something to prove and wants to bring our network down and wants to brag about it." " Ebay WAS at exodus, then half of it went to above. Maybe this is just the "conspirator" in me, but, what if that husband/wife team was 'contracted' for revenge, for the ebay move, and participated in paid corporate espionage? :) __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
