Has our national postcode just recovered from a day long Denial Of Service attack or is there another reason www.eircode.ie has been down for the best part of 24 hours.
Remember the National Ambulance Service has pledged full support to this fragile database driven postcode and it is only a matter of time before the Eircode finder site is subject to the same DDOS attack. We cannot have critical infrastructure relying on the whim of international hackers.
This is why we need an algorithm based code for our emergency services a code that can operate unimpeded on tens of thousands of devices 24/7 and is immune to attack.
Shame on Eircode and the cronies feathering their own nests. Eircode will cost lives.
