More backhackers needed

In regard to the Federal Computer Week article, "Sandia backhacker wins $4.3 million judgment against Sandia Labs," published Feb. 13, 2007, I think we need more backhackers, not less. Not only should we encourage such activity, I think we should include a budget for such activity in the Defense or Homeland Security departments' budgets -- if we don't already. These types of cyberattacks will be the way we are next invaded.
