This contractor pilot fish is at a client site — and, as usual, he and his cohorts are dealing with issues that weren’t originally contemplated when they were brought in.
“The network was going crazy,” fish reports. “This was a big site, with lots of routers and subnets, all carefully segregated. Something was hosing this big time, and sniffers told us we were seeing ‘contamination’ between subnets.”
Fish and his team eventually pin down where the contamination is happening. It’s in two subnets in adjacent wings of the corporate building: the ones for the legal department and software development.
So fish and his team decide to walk the floor to see if they can spot anything out of the ordinary.
