Windows 7: 40% of U.S. Government Web Sites Fail Security Test

40% of U.S. Government Web Sites Fail Security Test

Approximately 40% of federal government agencies are out of compliance with a regulation that requires them to deploy an extra layer of authentication on their Web sites to prevent hackers from hijacking Web traffic and redirecting it to bogus sites.

It's been more than two years since federal agencies were required to support DNS Security Extensions (DNSSEC) on their Web sites. However, two recent studies indicate that around 40% of federal Web sites have not yet deployed this Internet security standard.

Laggards on adopting this Internet security standard include the Department of Defense and the Central Intelligence Agency, experts say.
