This morning we noticed another server slowdown/shutdown that resulted from a large amount of traffic from one server with IP number that geo locates to gigantic defense contractor Lockheed Martin in Denver. Something weird is going on with this and we’re trying to figure it out. Cyberwarfare from a disgruntled individual within their organization who doesn’t like how many face shots we brag about each winter? Just a bunch of backcountry skiers withing their population of 10,000 employees all browsing out of the same server at nearly the same time? We shall see.
Thanks to those of you from Lockheed who provided me with contact info. If anyone has more info, instead of leaving a comment please send me email via contact link in menu to left.
I’ll leave comments on for this post, but please don’t comment with any public information that could cause me to be liable to Lockheed. They’ve got lots of money and lots of lawyers.
Also, please don’t leave any email addresses in the body of your comments, as those will be food for spambots.
