Computer Worm Shuts Down Hamodia Newspaper Operations

hamodiaA computer worm that is known to specifically attack networked computer systems infected virtually all computers used in the production of Hamodia, the newspaper said today. It is unknown how the worm struck, but an expert working on the problem late yesterday said that “it takes just one innocent click on a pernicious attachment to ultimately infect the entire network”.

The attack caused the shutdown of all computers, resulting in a delay of the weekly edition of the Hamodia.

In addition, their digital edition only contained one page today.

Hamodia expects the issues to be resolved in a matter of hours.

“Hamodia expresses regret for the inconvenience”, Hamodia said in a statement. “All readers from coast to coast should – iy”H – get the full weekly edition before Shabbos”. TLS. RS.

  1. They do a great job. Mrs lichtenstien is mamesh a trailblazer in keeping serious issues, previously taboo, into the fore. And Mrs Rachel Hubner, the editor of Binah Bunch is an unreal talent in creating a superb magazine which is educational & entertaining for kids. May you all have continued Hatzlachah. DB

  2. Hopefully they will sort this out. As they say, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I wish them a Refuah Shelaimah.

  3. Bina has introduced many topics previously taboo for children, like shalom bayis, drugs, gambling etc.
    A great educational tool to show innocent neshomos what really goes on in the world.

  4. In my humble opinion, Hashem may be sending a message that some of these “trailblazing” topics are better left out of the newspaper.
