Could not find link but found link to "EPA Vulnerable to Hacker Attack - Bliley Dec 21, 99-8:39pm CST A full two years after Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) admitted its information security plans were "deficient or non-existent," The..." end of quote.

What always gets me about these stories is how the mainstream media could NOT be reporting them! I mean, this is definitely a bigger story than "Man Finds His Long Lost Dog", yet we see stories like that all the time!

Grrrrrrrrr..........I HATE THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA!!!!!!
