Spoofed Email Causes Stir At SEC

This morning’s Wall Street Journal has an interesting, albeit breif, article about a spoof email which purported to be sent by an SEC enforcement attorney. The email was critical of the SEC Chairwoman Mary Shapiro and Inspector General David Kotz, particularly as it related to Mr. Kotz’s recent reports regarding the SEC’s performance prior to the economic downturn and its stock-trading scandal involving enforcement attorneys. The situation is a bit strange, but it only reinforces the President’s point about US cybersecurity. The article is available here.
