SonicWALL glitch leaves networks unprotected

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2008

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!

SonicWALL outage frustrates customers who felt exposed

Frustrates?  I’d use far stronger words if I were a customer.
