This report from England is of another data center being hit by thieves. Websites such as that of the Financial Times were hit and down until the back-up servers could be triggered. The snowball affect of these actions is massive. The websites go down and the hundreds of thousands who rely on these websites are in turn affected. Simply after scrap metal, these criminals have no idea about the consequences of their actions. It's not like the world is being brought to its knees like in Die Hard 4.0 but data center security is becoming an increasingly important issue.
