A licensing server glitch caused thousands of SonicWALL firewalls to become unauthorized and disabled all protection.
“It is being reported that firewall services have stopped and that spam, viruses, and other bad things are flowing in without a hitch.” – SANS ISC
It appears everything stopped functioning – firewalling, VPN, you name it. Obviously not such a good idea to have your network protected by DRM that can so easily go haywire and disable all protection!
Frustrates? I’d use far stronger words if I were a customer.
