Testing this and just had my first case of it totally crashing out on me. Just stopped getting messages but stayed open without any indication that something was wrong. Had to reboot as it could not be shut down.
That's nice, but you'll have to convince me that this is news. Fiber network taps have been around for almost as long as fiber. With fiber you can monitor the drop in signal. That's always been the real differentiator, the fact that you can tell you've been tapped.
This really changes the state of "will companies be willing to pay." When it is $300, people are quick to jump on the "of course you have to pay it" bandwagon. But when it is millions, it is much harder to decide that it is worth paying the ransom.
