Definately not outage Virgins

So in case you haven't heard an international budget airline here in Australia has had a major computer issue, see here.
By the sounds of it their outsourced service provider doesn't have redundant kit, as they couldn't simply fail-over. But it gets worse currently going to https://book.virginblue.com.au/FlightInfo.aspx or https://book.virginblue.com.au leaks a lot of information, and leaks a nice juicy standard ASP.Net error page, of the type that the recently discussed Asp.Net oracle padding attack can take great use of, see here.
Ouch and double ouch. Oh and we hear this is not the first outage they have had in as many months...
