United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team (US-CERT) - the federal agency in charge of protecting other agencies from computer intruder - was found riddled with hundreds of high-risk security holes on its own systems, according to the results of an audit released Wednesday. US-CERT, monitors the Einstein intrusion-detection sensors on nonmilitary government networks, and helps other civil agencies respond to hack attacks. It also issues alerts on the latest software security holes, so that everyone from the White House to the FAA can react quickly to install workarounds and patches.
