Sorry, but I couldn't get the article (it appears CNN underestimated
the number of users who might want to use their service).
However, based on the above, it appears that this is a remote security
testing service. If this is indeed the case, I think the most appropriate
response would be (quoting Shakespeare) "What fools these mortals be".
