Garmin is (partially) back on-line at last

Garmin has been off-line for about 4 days. They haven't, to my knowledge, been very forthcoming about the cause. Maybe they're not sure.

If you need to check [Garmin Servers Status] but as the Servers have been down since Thursday (maybe before - That's when I found out), they will be very busy and so almost certainly, overloaded and probably slow.

I shall do my monthly Update at about 3am tomorrow morning. 1

Apparently if they pay up they’ll be breaking US sanctions laws as Wasted Locker are considered to be based in Russia.

Is this so...? In which case more Russian interference...?

Well done QB, I have to admit that I didn't look too hard for the cause

Modern cyber espionage is no longer about how you do what you do - that aspect of the operation is relatively straightforward.

The tricky part now is how you try to cover your tracks.
