PITTSBURGH--CERT officials have issued a computer security warning in the wake of hundreds of recent breaches.
Most of the latest security breaches focused on vulnerabilities that are already well known. CERT officials said that lots of old weaknesses out there haven't been fixed yet.
Another reason for the increase in break-ins is the sheer volume of Web development, said officials. As Web sites continue to blossom and interest in the Net skyrockets, more companies putting up sites don't have the security know-how to protect themselves.
