Forwarded from: Steven Jay Moshlak <smoshlakat_private> Hi- My comments are embedded below and this is why going cheap, is dear. If I was one of the "rank and file" law enforcement officials who had learned that data about me was in the hands of a convicted felon or someone charges with a felony, I'd hang the entire group of Corrections Management that is responsible; directly or indirectly, out to dry, accordingly. The Management have failed to not only uphold their oaths as law enforcement officials, but have endangered the lives of sworn peace officers. This is the same state where a number of airplanes were "stolen" and the person ultimately responsible for the management of security at Logan was managed by a political appointee who has no knowledge of Airports to begin with. Regrettably, political patronage is apparently alive and well in Massachusetts. > Tanzi, a Massachusetts man charged with killing two women, had been > using the Monroe County Detention Center's computerized law library, > which consists of about 50 CD-ROMs that prisoners can tap into using > two steel-enclosed computer terminals in a basement room of the > jail.

Next time, hire network engineers, not "technicians." You get what you pay for. By the way, were these "trustees?" ----- Original Message ----- From: "InfoSec News" <isnat_private> To: <isnat_private> Sent: Thursday, February 14, 2002 2:41 AM Subject: [ISN] Irony: Inmate's hacking through jail computers comes to an end > Forwarded from: security curmudgeon <jerichoat_private> > > From http://www.naplesnews.com/02/02/florida/d759107a.htm > > "Inmate's hacking through jail computers comes to an end" > > Saturday, February 9, 2002 > Associated Press > > KEY WEST - An inmate was able to repeatedly hack into a jail > computer system, destroying files and going onto the Internet, even > though officials first caught him doing it last year. > > Michael Tanzi's Web excursions ended, though, once officials snared > him during an online cat-and-mouse game. > > Tanzi, a Massachusetts man charged with killing two women, had been > using the Monroe County Detention Center's computerized law library, > which consists of about 50 CD-ROMs that prisoners can tap into using > two steel-enclosed computer terminals in a basement room of the > jail. > > Last May, Tanzi discovered some law library software allowed him to > get on the Internet by gaining access to the sheriff's office > computer system, sheriff's spokeswoman Becky Herrin said. - ISN is currently hosted by Attrition.org To unsubscribe email majordomoat_private with 'unsubscribe isn' in the BODY of the mail.
