bidorbuy website down

I'm really having trouble buying some of this. So you guys are saying that the ISP didn't have the required firewalls/switches/routers/front end hardware (there are over 25 bandwidth management vendors available), etc. in place to safeguard a site of this nature from this type of attack? Oh well, guess tomorrow is as good a day as any to start implementing them.

 

Admittedly I don't know much (nothing actually) about this stuff but there is lots out there regarding, and it really would have felt more comfortable had it actually been just a case of an overwhelmingly successful marketing campaign.

 

Wishful thinking versus reality, of course.

 

True - we expected similar basic infrastructure from our hosting provider - while I would not have expected application specific security services (that is really bidorbuy's responsibility and there we are broadly covered) I would have expected that their core network infrastructure had the necessary protection. Remember, that it's not just bidorbuy hosted there, but many financial services and other corporates (including SARS). So it was a reasonable expectation that those systems are sufficiently in place.

 

Lesson learned on our part and we will need to look at improving those services on our end. (I guess it's comparable to a mall promising you sufficient security personal and monitoring services, only to realise that there is actually nothing appropriate in place).
