IT gets nasty

Ok. Remember my post about 2 IT companies in London victim of robbery?

It happened again.
This time the victim is the First tier Internet services provider Level 3 (supposed to be a top dog in term of security given the criticality of its clients applications).

If I count correctly, this is the third time in the same city during a period of 2 weeks.

It's either a gang as mentioned in the article or a new IT startup who tries to equip itself for free :-)

It could also be a big one who tries to eliminate the competition.

It reminds me an episode of Spooks in which an oil company try to nuke a rival's head quarter in the City and blame arab terrorists.

In related news, Boing Boing, Digg and Slashdot are reporting that a bomb has been detonated at PayPal/eBay head quarters in California.
