You are absolutely right - any online backup (onsite or offsite) is potentially susceptible to a sufficiently skilled or complex intrusion. The only system that is not susceptible to a remote attack is one where you have to be physically present to change the storage media.

Wow, that is frightening.

Just wondering whether you got any further with this eejit? I'm going ahead today with my rebuild onto Server 2008 R2 RTM and am wondering whether I'm still going to be on to a loser.

Sounds like exactly the situation I was concerned by when looking at going to a disk-only backup solution... seems a lot of people haven't considered that scenario in the rush to get away from tape.

That way at least we have something offline we could restore from. Also looked into a removable disk solution (Teralyte) but was far too pricey for what it was and prefer to have a different medium for long-term archive backups.
Cloud would be great but the prices are still far too high and becomes another ongoing cost to commit to (very difficult with current budgets)

One (hopefully final) update on the original issue: since rebuilding the server a second time, this time back onto Server 2008 R2 RTM instead of SP1, the server has so far been up uninterrupted for 4 days, which is significantly longer than it ever lasted when it was doing exactly the same backup tasks on SP1.
I don't know what it is about my setup that causes it to choke on SP1, and at this point I no longer care. I'm going to hold off trying SP1 again until DPM 2012 arrives.
