Sorks and Other Network Varmints Join Worms and Phish as IT Issues to Worry About

I love this article from Network World about the impact real-world animals can have on computer networks. As if there isn’t enough to worry about in the electronic world, now we learn of the dangers from rodents, such as the Swedish sork, and other animals to computer and communications systems.
The article brought a tiny tear of nostalgia to my eye because my very first legal technology column ever (for Lawyers Weekly USA) was called “The Case of the Malfunctioning Modem,” in which I showed how I applied my Sherlock Holmesian diagnostic techniques to find that a squirrel had chewed up the phone line to my house.
My favorite quote:
“We have to send out service men on a daily basis to take care of the damage being made by the woodpeckers,” he says.
The money quote:
“I’ve actually seen armored cable chewed through.”
