Former U.S. Sen. Fred Thompson: Internet Vulnerabilities Remain, via Public Notice Resource Center newsletter Government officials have known about the vulnerabilities the internet faces since at least 1998, when seven young hackers – bearing names like Space Rogue, Weld Pond and Brian Oblivion – testified before the United States Senate that “any of the seven individuals seated before you” could take the internet down with 30 minutes of well-choreographed keystrokes. Fred Thompson, the Tennessee Republican who chaired the Senate panel in 1998 and left Congress in 2003, said in a recent interview that internet security is the kind of problem the government has trouble fixing. “Number one, it’s very difficult, and number two, there’s no immediate political payoff for anyone,” he said. The vulnerability of technology users at the highest levels of government is a stark reminder of the value of publishing printed versions of public notices in newspapers. The newspaper and press association websites which host public notices may also be vulnerable to being taken offline, so the online postings are best used as an adjunct to the printed notice, because printed notices remain independent, archivable,accessible and verifiable.
