portal data breach: technical hitch or malicious glitch?
The data breach that wiped the Portal’s entire exposition back catalogue yesternight could have been the work of saboteurs, according to our head of security Katerina Brune.
‘We don’t have any evidence to suggest this wasn’t just the work of one of the morons in IT, but let’s face it: this is exactly the sort of thing the NANTARIS would do, and as far as I’m concerned, that’s reason enough to start pointing the finger. Half my life is spent dealing with their ridiculous attempts to infiltrate us, it was probably only a matter of time before something slipped through the net.’
The breach resulted in over ten cycles’ worth of groundbreaking exposition and exhilarating tales (as well as no small amount of fluff designed to pad out some of the slower periods) being lost to obscurity, which if nothing else, certainly begs the question as to why nobody thought to do any backing up.
And contrary to what staffroom gossip would have you believe, this was most certainly not just a contrivance to make a certain person’s life easier…
