I read the article “Barclaycard Netlink fights Internet hackers” (MW February 3) with disbelief.
There is no fear of hackers or anyone else gaining access to confidential data of any kind through Netlink because we have not put any confidential data on the system. Customer accounts, the area of biggest concern to us, are on a completely different system, and even messages or data exchanged by members of our staff using the Internet move over a local area network not connected to Netlink. I appreciate you are always on the look-out for a scoop but this story was not up to your usual standard.
