AolNews reports that US government agencies have requested a firewall to block Wikileaks’ data from entering their systems regardless of its origin.
Fidelis Security, a Boston-based network security company that works with the military and other government agencies, says it’s being asked to set up a firewall against WikiLeaks document traffic, regardless of whether it flows from a website, e-mail or other source. …
The Air Force, for example, has started blocking news media sites such as The New York Times that have re-posted some of the documents.
But Bertone said that the Air Force approach wouldn’t prevent someone from being e-mailed a leaked document, or accessing a website that hasn’t been specifically blocked by the Air Force.
