SANS - Survey on application security programs

The London Internet Exchange (LINX) has denied a report that it has launched a witch-hunt to find who leaked details of Microsoft's application to join the Internet clique.

According to VNU.net, LINX threatened to expel the ISP it claims was responsible for the leak.

It says the leak - the first to hit the organisation - breached the rules of its Internet club.

Details of opposition to M$' bid to join LINX were leaked to The Register last week.

Dismissing the witch-hunt, Roland Perry, Regulation Officer at LINX, told The Register: "We must make sure our members know that if things are confidential, they should remain confidential."

He denied that the source of the leak would be tracked down and expelled insisting that there was "never a doubt that Microsoft would be accepted".

The 110 members of LINX will be reminded of their duties and obligations when LINX meets again next week. ®
