Statement by The Chemical Manufacturers Association

ARLINGTON, VA, Feb 17, -/E-Wire/-- The following statement was issued today
by Jim Solyst, co-leader of the Chemical Manufacturers Association's
Information Management and Right to Know Team, following news that the
Environmental Protection Agency had temporarily shut down its public
Internet sites because of concerns the sites may have allowed unauthorized
users access to the sensitive business information U.S. firms provide the
agency each year. The General Accounting Office (GAO) recently conducted a
test of the agency's computer firewall system.  GAO was reportedly able to
penetrate and take over the EPA system, gain access to sensitive
information and learn the passwords of a number of EPA employees. On
February 7, CMA asked the agency to determine whether any of this
information has been compromised by attacks on the agency's computer
system. The agency has not responded to CMA's request.  For additional
information on this subject, contact Jeffrey C. Van at 703-741-5802.
