Re: Rescheduled: P2P file sharing national security and personalsecurity risks

  • From: Richard Irving

IMHO:

 No more, or less, than SMTP.

 It is -that- simple.

(Of course, SMTP is how China got
  Nuclear Secrets out of America :( )

FWIW: This is more tempestuous reactions at High Levels,
that would normally have been laughed off.....

Except P2P's are annoying the Recording Industry execs,
 and they have $$$ on the line, so.....

 $$$ has a way a bringing things to light that would
otherwise simply have been ignored....

 But, for this to make it to the NS Risk Assessment groups just
demonstrates the licentious influence between the Current
Administration Policies and "Money Men".

 After all, how many meetings are there going to
be assessing the risk SMTP has on National Security ?

 Or, as you mentioned, MS file sharing...

 And, remember, SMTP is -already- proven guilty of said Risk,
and a far more -probable- culprit in future compromises... !

Reality Check.

  My, what interesting times we live in,
     and darn it, important people noticed me! :{
