“Net of Insecurity--A disaster foretold — and ignored,” by Craig Timberg     Print Email

Washington Post, June 22—Excellent piece on the roots of the Internet’s vulnerability to hackers, featuring early “grey hat” hacker group, known as “the Lopht” who testified in1998 to a Senate panel that the whole system, network, hardwire and software was riddled with weaknesses that would permit easy intrusion. This is the third of a multi-part series in the Post on security issues with the internet. Recommended by European Affairs.
