Mergulhadores apanhados a tentar cortar cabo submarino...
Internet service in Egypt had already been off since 22 March, supposedly because a passing ship damaged a separate cable. The trio, who approached “hacking” from a different angle than usual, took to the water a day before repairs to the other cable were expected to be completed and service restored.
The effects of the ship taking out that cable were experienced as far away as Pakistan and India, Jim Cowie, chief technology officer at Renesys, a network security firm, told the Associated Press. Cowie noted that a severed cable can force wide scale data rerouting, with some of the packets traveling the long way around the world.
