Unemployment Web Site Is Designed For A Vulnerable

While numerous media reports coque iphone 11 have discussed how the State of New Jersey reliance on a mainframe running 40 year old COBOL code has adversely impacted its processing of unemployment insurance claims, an outdated web based interface to the same system coque iphone 6 vistaprint may be creating security vulnerabilities as well.

After coque samsung a50 registering to submit claims online, and then beginning to file a claim, New Jersey residents who have lost their source of income are coque iphone 6 plus oriental greeted by the State with a message telling them that the coque iphone 5s galaxie website coque iphone 5s pandab with which they are interacting is designed to work with Internet Explorer, and specifically with version 3, a coque iphone 5c audrey hepburn long unsupported version of Microsoft first generation web browser.
