Comment Barracuda Backup, too! (Score 1) 112

You can't change the keys, so if you want to use SSHFS to backup systems that aren't agent supported, you've potentially given root access to anyone who's extracted the private key from the appliance (and leaked it to the internet). I wouldn't be surprised if the agents used the same craptastic cryptographic fail.

This. I own a Volt and an Equinox. I'd be at the dealer at the first possible moment that I could order a Voltec powered Equinox.

I've been seeing more glimpses of upcoming Volt marketing. I'm hoping the marketing team will push it exclusively as the Gen 2 release gets closer.

Agreed, every time I look at any various looking glass to see why something is broken on the internet, it's Cogent dropping the ball... Remember this?

Every time I have to troubleshoot a broken internet problem, and it goes up to Tier 1 land, check the looking glass... It's Cogent being stupid. As soon as this story hit... check. Sure enough, Cogent-Level3 has ~3% packet loss the last 24 hours, with stupidly high latency. Screenshot .
