Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review Hacked - Total Data Loss - Hacked - Total Data Loss
Fri, May 15 2009 | 6:41PM | PermaLink Feedback?
Avsim, one of the most popular online flight simulator sites, has been deleted by malicious hackers. During the attack on the site, the intruders apparently destroyed data on both of the two servers that runs Avsim. What's worse - the founder of the site Tom Allensworth, said they had no external backup - so he has called it a complete loss. According to Allensworth, they backed up their data daily but only between the two servers - they had no external backup means or plan. Make this be a lesson to all of the other site owners out there, backup daily and backup externally - no matter how many servers you have.
