On September 18 NIMDA, one of the most potentially virulent network attacks ever, was unleashed on the Internet. While the damage is not as bad as it might have been, NIMDA once again demonstrated the vulnerability of shared networks to attack from cyber-vandals who exploit security weaknesses in commercial software.

Join host David Lassner and his guests from the worlds of law enforcement and network service provisions for a lively and enlightening hour of conversation about NIMDA, network security, recommended practices for safe computing, what the law says, and how to cope in an ever-more complex world of shared networks where we are more reliant on our neighbors than ever before.

During the live airing of the program, questions may be called in to 956-5670 or 1-800-342-7949 (neighbor islands), or sent by email to hth@hawaii.edu.
