Top 10 endpoint backup mistakes

A man has been released on police bail after being arrested in connection with the hack attacks that paralysed the Web sites of Lloyds of London and Railtrack at the beginning of the year. The man was arrested on Friday and but has to report back to police in June pending further enquiries. The alleged offences come under sections one and three of the Computer Misuse Act regarding unauthorised access and the modification of computer systems. He was arrested by officers from Scotland Yard's Computer Crime Unit. The identity of the man was not released. Earlier this year The Register carried an exclusive interview with a member of the group which claimed responsibility for hacking into the Lloyds of London Web site. "MisterX", as he called himself, also claimed that credit card transactions across the Internet were unsafe, and that he was able to hoover-up confidential data from Web sites. ® Related Stories Lloyds of London (twice), Met Office follow Railtrack UK in hack attack Railtrack, Lloyds of London Web hacker explains motives
