Major Hack in California and Another New Virus

Like California, Utah's computer systems are the target of thousands of attempted hacks.  The Sacramento Bee reports that 265,000 employee records with private data were compromised by the latest major attack.  Security vigililance is critical and we are lucky to have some good people in that area.

The NIPC has issued an advisory of another e-mail-borne worm known as W32.Bugbear or I-Worm.Tanatos. This network-aware worm, which is being circulated as an e-mail attachment, appears to target machines running Microsoft software. The worm is attached to e-mails with a wide variety of subject lines such as "bad news," "Membership Confirmation," "Market Update Report," and "Your Gift," and appears to use randomly generated names to avoid detection by anti-virus software, as well as multiple file extensions to disguise the fact that it is an executable file.

Can we clone Rory Perry?

We need a few more Rory Perrys in government.  Perry is a clerk for the Supreme Court of the State of West Virginia.  The creativity that he has demonstrated in making the proceedings of the court available to citizens needs to be emulated.  He is using streaming video to allow the public to watch court proceedings.  He uses a Radio weblog to share court opinions, case topics, and more.  The best part is that he has done this all at almost no cost to the Court.  I have been following his weblog for quite a while.  It was good to see him get some positive press in Government Technology.

I don't think Utah has webcast court proceedings, but we do have a nice site for court opinions which includes an option for PDA/handheld users and an email notification service.
