Computing published an article on Thursday that blamed the Government Gateway for the Inland Revenue's issues with Self Assessment. They also noted that any department using the Gateway would also be at risk of the issue. This despite both Cabinet Office and IR's press offices doing their best to explain the issue. The problem was nothing to do with the Gateway and there are no known exposures for those departments using the Gateway. I really wanted to link to the story and pick it apart line by line, but unfortunately VNU's web site is down. And it's not just down - it's "page not found" down - no message, no reroute, nothing. Perhaps they're hosted at KPN Qwest or Worldcom or something.
