Norwegian websites may be of help to terrorists

Rolleiv Solholm:

Norwegian companies and public services are uncritical to what information they publish on the internet.

Much of this information could be misused by terrorists.

This is stated in a new report from the National Security Authority (NSM), which is concerned over much of the information on the web published by by Norwegian industry.

The information may assist terrorists who are planning attacks on Norway, Aftenposten writes.

The NMS is particularly concerned over the spreading of sensitive information about the oil and gas sector, the energy and water supplies, as well as the communication and finance sectors.

The NMS report sites as an example sensitive information and drawings showing details of the construction of the Snoehvit gas project in the north, the newspaper writes.

I would be surprised if this problem was just confined to Norway.
