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
And the War Continues
The latest victim is Brookhaven National Labs. The main web page for

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.)

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.
