Quote: "In a dramatic confirmation of how vulnerable Defense Department computers connected to the Internet actually are, the Defense Information Systems Agency revealed that it has conducted mock attacks on more then 8,000 DOD computers over the last two years. The DISA team successfully broke into more than 88 percent of the computers. Less than 5 percent even realized they had been attacked." - Federal Computer Week, February 6, 1995.
