3 of 4 cables between Europe and the Middle East were cut this morning. Or something, no one seems to know yet. At this point I can’t even see a link that show whether or not these cables have any physical proximity, so I don’t know if it could be one incident or three separate incidents. This is the second time this year that major cables have been cut between Europe and the Middle East, so even if there is no conspiracy involved, it’s still a major problem. After all, who ever put these in place needs to explain why they’re so delicate that they could accidentally bet broken en mass. The SANS Internet Storm Center is trying to keep us up to date, so keep an eye on their site for further updates.
You want to know what’s really causing all the cable breaks?
