"we have very degraded services concerning the digital work environments put in place by the communities, we have the CNED tool which is almost unavailable for three days and We even have the private tools that are usually available that have dysfunctioned on short periods since the beginning of the week, "says the headmaster.

Jets' Nathan Beaulieu out for season following shoulder surgery

  Jets' Nathan Beaulieu out for season following shoulder surgery Beaulieu was playing with the injury this season but hadn’t suited up since exiting a game against the Toronto Maple Leafs in early March. In all, his year will end with 25 games played and just a single assist. Fortunately for the 28-year-old defenseman, his contract extends through next season so he won’t have to try and find work coming off a major injury. Though obviously losing Beaulieu isn’t ideal, being able to move his contract—which carries a $1.25M cap hit—to long-term injured reserve does give the Jets a little more flexibility at the upcoming trade deadline.

This form of attack is common. Yet Nicolas Arpagian, author of the book Cybersecurity, doubt that the CNED was a victim. "If there was a Cyber ​​attack by denial of service, it does not correspond to the usual characteristics that are: either the crapper approach with financial demands or the ideological approach with the highlighting of a speech. It looks each other Not at all to a classic case of denial of service attacks. For him, it would simply be a technical problem of sizing the servers.

It could nevertheless exist another motivation to this potential cyber attack: a "bad joke" of young students. "We could imagine that adolescents or young adults, who are often video games and who are used to practicing this type of attack, often done in a logic of games, could have used their knowledge -Fake against the site that asked them to be connected to the school at home, "Imagine Billois Gérôme, Cabinet Wasted." A game "that could be very expensive: seven years in prison and 300,000 euros fine.

"If we have not been able to do it for a year ..."

College and high school students will resume remote courts the week of April 26, before a presential return on May 3rd. In the meantime, educational teams hope that technical worries will be settled. "This is our request," Bruno Bobkiewicz supports. "We have two weeks before us who arise. The idea is that we can have the ability to allow students to work in the best conditions."

It is nevertheless skeptical. "If we have not been able to do it for a year, will we be able to do it for two weeks? Since we were guaranteed that everything was going to walk, we can still be today. Hui worried about how things will be able to evolve. "

Boston Bruins to acquire Taylor Hall .
Hall had just two goals in 37 goals for the Sabres this season.Hall had full control of this process, considering he held a no-movement clause and could block a trade to any team in the league. He decided to waive that clause to go to Boston. David Pagnotta of The Fourth Period notes that the New York Islanders and Washington Capitals were also in the running earlier Sunday. The fact that the Sabres were unable to secure a first-round pick for Hall will be the takeaway for Buffalo fans, but he is in the midst of a brutal season.
