Re: Vigilante Justice Catching Innocent Bystanders/Business in the digital age
This is a fascinating account of how a business can be dragged into a server shutdown if accused of harboring malware. I can understand how there would be zero tolerance for malware, but on the otherhand this can exact a heavy toll on customers relying on the business whose servers are temporarily shutdown.
With the growing use of managed services in financial markets, many securities and investments firms rely on hosted applications. I am curious if the scenario of policing malware in the digital ages comes up in these agreements. Would the hosting servces shut down an application for live trading or risk management if they detected malware?
