On this day in the world of news

On this day February 28, 2009. The last day of February... This reminded me of what a friend said in 1980 in response to the question, 'what happened to all of the outspoken community activists we had always heard so much from'; he said, "they are busy trying to survive...", as we all were during the recession of the 1980's.

Eighty five percent of IT(Information Technology) personnel involved in IT security are not qualified for the jobs that they fill.

Guess when this stat came out and who published it.

TODAY. Some idiot involved in Defense Department IT, with a file sharing program installed on a desktop computer successfully compromised the Presidents Transportation Systems (O.K. it was the Marine One helicopter specs).

Heres what. The company that the contract went to should be fired Immediately. The contract should go to an American Company. Chances are, following the Bush White house and Bill Gate's involvement in the evolution of government IT consumption, It may well not be and American company.

Secondly, the individuals or companies that oversaw the dispensing of the contract where they didn't specify intermittent reoccurring audits of the entire system should be fired. These would be the bare bones minimum requirements to address the security requirements. Finally any such system that consisted entirely of Windows Software should be immediately aggressively eliminated.

Worth attention is the fact that if this Idiot had file sharing software installed on a Government network, especially on a Microsoft Windows machine, then there is no way of knowing for how long and quantitatively how much of what was on that network was compromised. ... especially where the compromisers knew the nature of the exploited.
