Christmas is over!
It's all over though it was good, now we have to pay the price with some serious catching up.
While you were having a well earned break your website and internet services remained working hard for you. I know because we had enquiries from ours from parts of the world that don't treat the Christmas period quite as we do in the UK.
Even while everyone is off we monitor all our maintained websites to ensure they stay safe and up to date with the current security patches. The Christmas period has seen unprecedented levels of hacking with Xbox, iPlayer, Playstation, Steam and many other sites and servers attacked.
It wasn't just the newsworthy sites that got attacked but many thousands of others. None of ours were effected though if we hadn't done our job they could well have been.
Cavespider, keeping safe over Christmas
