aesoteric writes “The Australian National Audit Office has called on all Australian government agencies to block free web-based email services like Gmail and Hotmail to mitigate security and information integrity risks. The auditor noted that such public email services “should be blocked on agency IT systems, as these can provide an easily accessible point of entry for an external attack and subject the agency to the potential for intended or unintended information disclosure.” Not surprisingly, the move is seen by some as an attempt to prevent a WikiLeaks-style disclosure from occurring.”
