Letter to the Editor

While there are ideological differences between cultures that were a significant cause for last Tuesday's attack, we cannot simply say that they attacked us due to their opposition to our "freedom" or our "way of life." We must keep in mind that we have taken many actions that spur this anger.Our constant military interference in other nations is bound to make enemies for us.

"Computer Worm Hits UB, Servers Across the Country"

UB was among the thousands of networks crippled by a new computer worm Tuesday, one that left the entire university with little or no access to the Internet.The "W32.Nimda.A@mm" worm, described by virus protection software manufacturer McAfee as "high risk," is a self-promulgating virus that spreads from infected Microsoft IIS Internet servers by utilizing 16 known vulnerabilities, similar to the "Code Red" worm that slowed Internet traffic twice during the summer.The new worm, however, has proven to be much more damaging than Code Red, causing denial of service (DOS) attacks nationwide through an unmanageable excess of server traffic.Beginning early Tuesday morning, network administrators at UB were faced with a mounting problem, according to Rick Lesniak, director of academic services for CIT."Earlier in the day, we had a problem with slowdowns up until about noon," said Lesniak, who as of Tuesday night was meeting with campus and CIT officials to work toward reinstating UB's Internet service.

September 11 - A Perspective

I, like most of us, have been thinking about the terrorist actions of a week ago. Much as we tend to think that, when it comes to human life, numbers don't matter, I believe that in some way they do.
