Breach Detection BREACH DETECTION

Having only recently been targeted by a severe cyber attack, Mumsnet has once again been hit in a fresh sequence of attacks. The current attack resulted in user passwords having to be reset, and for the site to be temporarily shut down.

The damages caused following repeated cyber attacks has prompted the requirement for hardened host intrusion detection solutions, in order to spot any breaches that may be occurring, even if it impossible to altogether stop them.
