EPA's Web Environment Unsafe Misc.8/14/2000; 8:48:48 AM 'How can the Environmental Protection Agency take care of the planet when it can't even protect its own computer network? That's the question raised by a General Accounting Office report released Friday that concluded that the EPA's information security measures are "ineffective" and "riddled with security weaknesses."' ...'In a statement, the EPA said that it takes information security seriously, and that it has already instituted policies to bolster its network.'heh heh... ph3ar th3 p0l|c|3s.(translation: Beareucratic policies aren't much good for defending systems. I can see the "policy" now... "It is EPA policy that EPA computer systems shall not be vulnerable to crackers." Yeah, that'll fix everything!)
