[LINK] The Register: Aussie cops and Feds use DIRT
Wed, 20 Mar 2002 07:28:05 +1000
I wouldn't panic ... reading the e-mail the Reg obtained seems to say
"reseller suckered, now in panic". My bet is that WRC, a minor reseller/SI,
has done its money.
I'd strongly suspect that WRC's "This is going to be an issue with the
Police department" is an attempt by the company to get DIRT's author to
believe there's a chance of a sale.
The headline's a bit of a misnomer as well: nowhere does the story suggest a
successful sale to the police.
