Where’d Kipp go?

Where’d Kipp go?

Kipp’s security was breached on Tuesday night, and it went downhill from there.

On Tuesday night, someone from Norway hacked into Kippreport’s system and copied all our articles. If you tried to visit our website yesterday, you’d know that we were unprepared for hackers. Today, the site is better secured.

In any case, while the IT department was busy tearing up cables and crying in Kipp’s office corner, the editorial team opened a bag of crisps and gossiped about Dubai and the general lack of online security. To be fair, we had never thought about security before – only recently did a Kipp writer discover what Web 2.0 means – but the experience showed us just how unsecured companies are in the region.

Is it because IT departments don’t know about the importance of security? Is there a lack of information out there on internet security? Is it that most IT departments don’t think that anyone would hack into their system? Or is it that they don’t want to spend the money on protecting their company’s system?
We don’t know. Our department is suffering from post-traumatic stress, and aren’t fit to talk to right now. But this really should be a topic discussed more often.

And finally, a letter to Hackers:

Dear Hackers,

Please go away.

Love,

Kipp
