Your Message From IT Security for Today

"We will be coming over to poke each of in the eye with a sharp stick. If we do not make it to your office before close of business, please poke yourself in the eye with a sharp stick."

We had a security threat that has led us to shut down PCs across our network. We were given a deadline to update our machines or face networking blocking, but management has decided to block PCs well ahead of schedule after which an email was sent out warning that network blocks would start occurring.

The email never reached its intended victims users because they couldn't get on the network to read it.

It was actually much worse. Navy leadership had over a week to ponder the extent of the problem before springing into action and blaming the victims for their slow response.
