WebSTAR Secure Where Others Fail

StarNine Technologies, Inc. publishers of the WebSTAR Server Suite and ACI
US, Inc. publishers of the 4th Dimension RAD/RDBMS Environment, today
reaffirmed their commitment to creating the most secure server products
possible. This announcement comes after the successful repulsion from an
attack early last week by a group of Brazilian hackers on the United States
Army's www.army.mil site which is currently served by WebSTAR Server. These
same hackers did successfully manage to access several other government
sites last week including the Bureau of Land Management's National Training
Center and two other U.S. Army web servers which were not running WebSTAR.

In September of last year, the U.S. Army changed their operating system
from a Windows NT based server to the Macintosh based WebSTAR Server Suite
after the Army's main Web site was altered by a hacker. The continuous
attempt this server faces has only served to reinforce to ACI and StarNine
the need both government and corporate servers have for the tight security
WebSTAR's servers provide.

"It is gratifying to know that WebSTAR has been able to withstand this
attack on the U.S. Army site but we also know there are hackers out there
who will see WebSTAR as a challenge," said Brendan Coveney, President ACI
US, Inc. "That is why we are committed to maintaining the most secure
server product possible to protect against future attacks."

"While it is technically possible to hack a server running WebSTAR, such a
hack could only be done by security holes explicitly created by the
Webmaster," stated Eric Zelenka, product manager for WebSTAR.
