A Train Wreck on the Horizon
Not only has Nagin failed miserably in his promise to keep our city safe from crime in the corporeal realm....he's now opened up the city website to a potential cyber attack.
The SSL certificate on the city website has expired. That means that anyone going on the site to pay a parking ticket by entering their credit card number will be entering their financial information on an unsecure system. Cyber theives could be acquiring CC numbers entered on the site en masse, as I write this.
I can see the class action lawsuit unfolding already....just what the city needs at a period when we can't even get our streetlights fixed.
This is just gross incompetence...pure and simple. In his first 100 days he's done nothing but travel around the country selling himself out for speaking engagements at 5k per pop. This is just pathetic.
