EDS big mouth spills guts on crowded train

Where's the mobile-free zone when you need one, eh?

Lke all right-thinking people, The Reg loves saddoes who insist on using mobile phones to conduct loud and lengthy business calls on crowded trains, especially when they are EDS execs.

This morning a real Mister Angry, who was working his way through a pile of papers emblazoned with the EDS logo, could be heard shouting into his mobile about a major website security breach and why the Hell had it taken [name removed] four hours to pull the firewall offline after the attack had been discovered.

The purple-faced one bemoaned the fact that he hadn't got home until one thirty in the morning and added that he'd demanded that [name removed] be sacked immediately.

"If you phoned someone and said his wife was being raped would he wait four bloody hours before doing anything?" thundered your man.

EDS in the UK denied that any hack attack had compromised its web site. So the burning question remains: which of EDS' customers was on the receiving end?

Suggestions on a postcard please. ®

EDS factoid

EDS UK's home page has a witty note reading: "Your mother called and wants to know why it was so easy to hack into the company intranet". It's an advert.
