RE: OT: unathorized network user.



I'd figure out some way to fix your network so you can encrypt it again. First rule of sysadmin is to protect your network- if you can't do that then you can't really blame others for accessing it. Besides the simple aspect that if someone this clueless can access your network then what could someone malicious do?
