U.S. Investigating Sale of Snort as Security Risk

Recommended Posts

msmoriarty writes "The Associated Press is reporting today that the same U.S. committee that approved the Dubai ports deal is 'strongly objecting' to Israeli-based Check Point's acquisition of Snort's parent company, Sourcefire, because it doesn't want a foreign company to own Snort's underlying technology. According to the article, the broader 45-day review process rejected for the ports deal is already underway regarding this transaction, and 'secret' meetings between the FBI, DoD and Check Point have been held."slashdot?g=4025

It's stupid. War on terrorism my butt it's all about the money, it has always been. If we are so afraid why give a foreign country control over your ports. It should be an american company.
