  DOD Unplugs From Net as Another Gov Site Gets Hit

contributed by info-warrior
In a move spokespeople are calling "proactive" (yeah, right) the Department of Defense has announced that it will be pulling its systems off the net to upgrade security and install a firewall. (About damn time.) The White House has also issued a stern warning to would be crackers saying "You will be caught". Interesting quote from the Washington Post "Securing government Web sites against attack is difficult because the sites are designed for open access." What makes them any more difficult to secure or more open than a corporate web site?

And the War Continues
The latest victim is Brookhaven National Labs. The main web page for the site was defaced late last night by the "Posse". They at least left an interesting message.

  UCITA About to be Approved

contributed by Ryan.Russell
The Uniform Computer Information Transactions Act is about to be approved. This draconian act will give vendors the right to repossess software by disabling it remotely (meaning you have to leave a port open on the firewall? Just imagine the DoS possibilities.); prevent the transfer of licenses from one party to another without vendor permission (Does this include my copy of LoadRunner for the Atari2600 that I sold for $5?); outlaw reverse engineering (Whoa, no more third party security analysis). This new law is being supported by such software giants as Microsoft, Adobe, and WinPro. The proposed legislation is set to go before the National Conference of Commissioners on Uniform State Laws in July. If this panel approves this measure it will then be sent to state legislations around the country. (Good way to bypass the feds.)

  Bomb Making Info Available, For Nukes!

contributed by akeldama
The Chinese are claiming that the recently released Cox report that lambasted computer security at the Department of Energy and pointed the finger at China for stealing US Nuclear secrets was a total farce. China is claiming that the nuclear 'secrets' it supposedly stole are in fact freely available on the web, so just how secret can they be. Better Grab your nuclear info before it to disappears.
