    With telcos being hit worldwide, is a massive cyber attack on the Eir network now almost inevitable?

    I imagine there are ongoing multiple attempts by criminals on the likes of Eir. And their systems have proved robust enough to repel them. Not the sort of thing they would make public.

    Well I only rent a landline from that lot and given that it crackles as you talk, I can't imagine a cyber attack doing much extra damage.

    Given Eirs response times to anything else, it'd be 2029 before they actually notice anyway.
