                           Rumor of Alleged Attack

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

There have been several recent reports in the media and other places

about an alleged attack on some telephone systems, apparently in

response to the sentencing today in Atlanta of three members of a

computer intruder group called "Legion of Doom".  As of this time

(Nov. 16 at 4:30 PM EST), CERT/CC has not received any evidence to

substantiate this rumor.

Caution (not panic) is advisable.
