Adidas.com shut down after 'criminal attack'

Adidas has taken several of its websites offline after an attack last week

Adidas has been forced to take some of its main websites offline after a "sophisticated, criminal cyber-attack" that took place last week, the company said.

Adidas.com, reebok.com, miCoach.com and adidas-group.com all were taken offline, along with various local e-commerce sites, the company said in a statement Sunday.

At least two of the sites, adidas.com and miCoach.com, appeared to still be offline Monday evening. "Due to technical difficulties our website is currently not available," said a message at adidas.com.

The sportswear vendor first learned of the attack last Thursday, it said.

"Our preliminary investigation has found no evidence that any consumer data is impacted. But, while we continue our thorough forensic review, we have taken down affected sites ... in order to protect visitors to our sites," it said.

It didn't provide further details of the attacks or say who was responsible. A note on the miCoach website said Adidas hoped to have the site running again by the end of the day Tuesday.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
