London Stock Exchange problem was network change mix up (http://www.computerweekly.com/Articles/2010/11/05/243776/London-Stock-Exchange-problem-was-network-change-mix.htm)


The two-hour disruption experienced by the London Stock Exchange's Turquoise multilateral trading facility (MTF) this week was the result of an error by a contractor when making a small network change, according to a source close to the company.

Except the same kind of problem happened in the early 2000's (test systems being pointed at production systems). You would have thought they had learned from that earlier episode. Evidently not.

Get the CVs in, there will be a few roles available.

Contractor takes the fall. Nothing to see here. :rolleyes:

Riiiiiight.

So no issue with people's access rights then? No internal security policy issues?

No problems about a lack of a robust design?

No problems with processes & procedures?

No problems with problem detection and resolution?

Just a dodgy contractor. Fancy that.

Still, I suppose it's a step forward from "a computer error".

A financial crash happens not long after the last person who remembered the previous one retires.

I guess the same kind of thing applies here.

The council glass recycling lorry used to come round EVERY DAY to collect the empty beer bottles from the seven or so huge bins they had.

The LSE was brought down by 1pm, every day, as far as I could see!
