Internet is still vulnerable to cyber-criminals
--James Temple, Chronicle Columnist, Saturday, January 21, 2012
I was one of his subject matter experts that he interviewed for the article. He found me because of a 2002 article I wrote for the Internet Society about DDoS attacks on the 13 DNS Root Servers in October 2002.
