ISP Sky Broadband Cuts off ACS:Law
« on: September 28, 2010, 06:56:23 pm »
In the wake of the epic email database breach which was first reported here on, the law firm of ACS:Law is currently being broadsided from virtually every direction. The ISP Sky Broadband is reporting they have cut off any further cooperation with ACS:Law due to the email breach. While there's a mountain of information still being compiled, currently at least  4,000 Sky customer's information was leaked into the wild thanks to sloppy web host administration and the lack of encrypting sensitive documents.

Sky Broadband today issued a press release  on the matter, identifying significant privacy concerns. Sky is one of several ISPs who have given up their data to ACS:Law - with little noticeable resistance. It appears that 4,000+ Sky customers may have been affected by ACS:Law's lack of security measures.

"We have suspended all co-operation with ACS:Law with immediate effect. This suspension will remain in place until ACS:Law demonstrates adequate measures to protect the security of personal information."

Sky are trying to play the innocent party in all this. They deserve to see their broadband customers leaving them in droves.
