Next gen security for virtualised datacentres

Web entrepreneurship is all about eyeballs, and Florida Supreme Court seems to have struck the mother-lode by, er, frying them. The court's Web site has been bombed for most of today after it published pictures of Allen Lee Davis, who'd been 'prepared' in the State electric chair a little earlier. The site (Don't click, you sicko) is still unobtainable as we write, thank goodness. Learning from the experience (or not) a court spokesman said it had generated lots of emails from all over the world favouring the death penalty. "Thanks for putting together the beginning, middle and end to the process," said one. The end of the process, as we understand it, showed Davis' corpse with blood dripping from his nose onto his white shirt. Nice. Future Florida Web stars scheduled for the chair later this month are said to be protesting. The court itself, noting the effect the pictures have had on its site, is proposing corrective action. It reckons it should upgrade its hardware and software. ®
