Submission + - U.S. Attorney's office bans Drudge Report

Strudelkugel writes: The U.S. Attorney's Office in Massachusetts directed employees earlier this month not to log onto the Drudge Report website with government-issued computers due to potential viruses on the site. In an e-mail message sent May 4, Paul Harvey, an information-technology official for the Boston office, wrote that security specialists with the U.S. Attorney's Office at the Department of Justice asked them "to reformat/reimage two computers because the user visited the drudgereport.com site." "Please avoid the Drudgereport website from the [United States Attorney's Office] computers," Harvey wrote. Harvey said that if employees had a "work-related reason to visit the site," access could be provided off the government network.
