March 1, 2012: PBX Hacked

Medifast Status: Day 303, Down ~76.5lbs (23.5lbs to go)

My morning started off normal enough today.  I went in to the office and normal time thinking that it would just be a normal day.  Wrong.

On my drive in to the office I made a podcast on the drive using the Tascam digital recorder that I bought a few years ago on a drive from Texas to Philadelphia.  That digital recorder is awesome.  It really does a great job and really easily.  It was a pretty rough podcast and an internal use one, not something for posting on here, but it worked out well.  My short commute is handy for limiting the amount of time that I can spend on it.

As soon as I got into the office we discovered that our PBX was hacked and was making international calls.  It didn’t take long to get it locked down but it did not make for a fun day at all.  I spent the entire day working on lock-down methodologies and monitoring.  That was really annoying.

Work was pretty busy today and I was actually so busy that I ended up working right through lunch.  Not fun, that makes for a very long day.

Today was really just busy, nothing else to tell.
