Two rumors from one of my sources in the press:
1) Indictments are possibly about to be handed down by the grand jury
in Syracuse hearing evidence in the RTM/worm case.
2) The Milnet break-ins last week may not have been simple
student hackers exploiting holes, but may instead have been
"more sinister acts."

Factoid:
For those of you wondering at the silence of the normally
quite-responsive Mike St. Johns over the last week, he just sent me
mail saying he had just returned from a 12-day vacation sailing.  He is
(obviously) concerned over the events, and will inform us of whatever
he is allowed to, I suspect.

A suggestion:
If RTM pleads guilty to doing the worm, ask your corporate/university
legal staff to begin civil proceedings to file a lien against RTM and
associated parties unknown against all current and future earnings
related to this incident, including but not limited to:  movie rights,
book rights, TV rights, and employment tendered as a result of his
actions in this matter.

A cheap attempt at humor:
Who has details on this CERT group?  Is Bostic a member?  If
so, is he a breath mint or a piece of candy?
