Virtual private networking software from Cisco Systems, Juniper, and other manufacturers can make users susceptible to a variety of web-based attacks, the US Computer Emergency Readiness Team warned on Monday. So-called clientless SSL VPN products, which provide browser-based access to intranets, email and other internal …
... of course if you have your users VPN'd into the intranet and at the same time surfing or otherwise in contact with the rest of the net for non-trusted domain usage, they can act as an inadvertent bridge between your network and the whole internet.

okay. scratch that.
Where did using tenant come from there? And can that person's left pinky fingernail be torn out as a way to raise staff morale and inspire them to stop making everyone look like droolers?
