As an update to my previous message, I thought I’d post the following extract from the Cable & Wireless, Guernsey, terms and conditions of service:
5. SYSTEM AND NETWORK SECURITY
Violations of system or network security are prohibited, and may result in criminal and civil liability. Cable & Wireless Guernsey will investigate incidents involving such violations and will involve and will co-operate with law enforcement if a criminal violation is suspected. Examples of system or network security violations include, without limitation, the following:
Unauthorised access to or use of data, systems or networks, including any attempt to probe, scan or test the vulnerability of a system or network or to breach security or authentication measures without express authorisation of the owner of the system or network.
Unauthorised monitoring of data or traffic on any network or system without express authorisation of the owner of the system or network.
5.3. ‘Denial of Service’
Interference with service to any user, host or network including, without limitation, mail bombing, flooding, deliberate attempts to overload a system and broadcast attacks.
The forging of, TCP-IP packet header information, or any part of the header information in an email or a newsgroup posting.
If approached with complaints relating to any of the above violations, Cable & Wireless Guernsey will co-operate and assist the Police and law enforcing bodies with their investigations in order to bring such misuse and violations to an end.
