CHICAGO, Sept. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Confidential documents authored by consulting firm Booz-Allen Hamilton illustrating Chicago's mass transit system vulnerabilities to terrorist attack were leaked on the internet via a P2P File sharing network according to Larry Yellen an investigative reporter with WFLD Fox News in Chicago. Mr. Yellen reported yesterday that he used a P2P program called LimeWire to obtain these documents.
An emergency alert announced on TV and radio stations in Illinois this morning appears to be the result of a human error in Washington, D.C.
"Apparently, there's some kind of test being run that shouldn't be going out," Lawrence said. "(IEMA) is getting besieged with phone calls from all over the state."
Rather than a test code being sent to the satellites, the Presidential code was sent instead.
"we don't know why the federal govt used a 'hot' or active code rather then a test code."
