I love this well written explanation in the article rolling eyes

 

"The security software giant said unspecified gremlins knackered its cloud-hosted email filtering service, resulting in email flows slowing to a trickle for customers in North America and EMEA."

El-Reg, as it is known, have some sharp tacks on their staff... But they pride themselves on stooping some articles down to the level of your average, well, (insert daily paper here) headline... 🙄

@Cleoriff 

 

I do recommend reading El Reg even to those who don't work in any technical field as they do put an amusing slant on what most would consider very dry material

 

Been reading it since I was in sixth form college and my school finally decided to get an Internet connection.

 

It only took them until 1998....

 

 

Current tech used:
Nokia 5 on giffgaff, Core i7 9700F PC with Win 10 Pro. Apple Mac Mini late 2014 with Core i5 running 10.15
Home Internet Connection: Zen Internet Fibre To The Premises Full Fibre 1 38 Mbps Down/9 Mbps up,
I don't work for O2 but have an interest in networks (including mobile) and IT (which is how I earn my living)
