Troubled ISP 08004u has shut down -- for the time being at least. It seems the Dundee-based company is getting ready to relaunch its service on 1 December. No doubt it's looking to start again with a clean slate. This is contrary to speculation that the ISP was on the verge of going bust after 22,000 Net users gained unauthorised access to the service at the company's expense. Attempts to contact the company to quiz it over the allegations have so far proved difficult since its phones don't appear to be working. Its Web site was also not receiving visitors yesterday returning error messages instead of the usual garish flashes. At least Dundee Trading Standards officers are still on the case. They paid yet another visit to the ISP on Tuesday to make sure everything was tickety-boo -- well, as tickety-boo as you can get with 08004u. ® Related story: 22,000 people and the 08004u security lapse
