A proposed rule published Aug. 24 by the Defense Department and two other government agencies would require federal contractors to furnish basic safeguards to computer systems that hold government information, reports the Washington Business Journal.
The proposal would require agencies to add a clause to contracts that addresses requirements for "the basic safeguarding of contractor information systems that contain or process information provided by or generated for the Government," other than public information.

Sometimes a good hack is just a lesson to be taught, that we rely on technology so much, and put trust into computers, even though it only takes a bit of know how to screw it all up.
