I found this at Environment News Service: 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.
