Brian Krebs of The Washington Post blogs:

"Stewart Baker, recently appointed by President Bush as the  
Department of Homeland Security's assistant secretary for policy,  
made a comment that suggested that some anti-piracy efforts  
introduced by the industry could have profound and unexpected effects  
on the security of the nation's critical infrastructures. . . .

"'I wanted to raise one point of caution as we go forward, because we  
are also responsible for maintaining the security of the information  
infrastructure of the United States and making sure peoples' [and]  
businesses' computers are secure. ... There's been a lot of publicity  
recently about tactics used in pursuing protection for music and DVD  
CDs in which questions have been raised about whether the protection  
measures install hidden files on peoples' computers that even the  
system administrators can-F¢t find.' . . .

"'It's very important to remember that it's your intellectual  
property -- it's not your computer. And in the pursuit of protection  
of intellectual property, it's important not to defeat or undermine  
the security measures that people need to adopt in these days.'"
