Internet-based Security Incidents and the Potential for False Alarms.
Evans, M. P.; Furnell, S. M.
Internet Research, v10 n3 p238-45 2000
Explains the background to experimental work intended to measure aspects of the World Wide Web, which inadvertently caused two perceived security breaches on remote systems. Describes the nature of these incidents and considers why, when over 700,000 addresses were sampled, only two sites considered the activity to be an attempt to breach their security. (Author/AEF)
