And another cyber attack has happened.
This time is seems there was no hack as such, but a Distributed Denial of Service issue which affected universities across the country.
The attack was aimed at network Janet, used by many universities and couldn't have come at worse timing with many students trying to submit final assignments.
Looks like online security is on my Christmas wish list this year...
Universities across the country have lost their internet connections following a sustained cyber attack on a publicly-funded academic computer network, while fire services' networks are also believed to have been affected.
