Do you take security seriously with your network...nobody seems to be immune...be sure your network is using updated and current security products... and work with your IT folks...BD
Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., said he believes Unisys Corp the company that holds the $1.7 billion contract to build parts of the Homeland Security Department's computer network is at fault for these network break-ins. Thompson chairs the House Homeland Security committee and asked the department's inspector general to investigate. Thompson's investigation found that dozens of computers may have been compromised by hackers, but the incidents were not noticed until months after the attacks. Information taken from the department's systems was sent to a Web service that connects to Chinese Internet sites, and contractors gave misleading information to the department about the attacks, according to Thompson's findings.
