Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Online gaming outfit, Gameplay, is really in the shit. No, really, it is in the shit.

That flood we told you about last week - well, it appears it wasn't just water...but sewage.

Gameplay's London offices were due to re-open on Monday but that's been postponed until at least the end of the week.

Apparently, there's six inches of crap on the floor and no one's allowed in because the place is considered a health risk.

We understand that floor panels will have to be replaced and the floor treated with acid before staff will be allowed back in.

No one from Gameplay was available for comment. However, a spokeswoman for the company said that the company was continuing to trade and that it was "business as usual". Phew! ®
