A jingling of coins may soon replace the rustling of dollar bills, if a new, money- saving plan by the GAO is enacted. The move could save the U.S. more than $5.5 billion over 30 years, GAO's Lorelei St. James told Federal News Radio.
The $100 bill, the highest value denomination in general circulation, is the last bill to undergo an extensive redesign. The Bureau of Engraving and Printing began the process in 2003, adding splashes of color to spruce up first the $20 and then the $50, $10 and $5 bills. The $1 bill isn't getting a makeover. Larry Felix, Director of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, tells us about the new bill.
The Treasury Department has taken off-line four public websites for the Bureau of Engraving and Printing after a malicious code was found on a parent site. Visitors to the web domains, which provide information about U.S. currency, were redirected to a Ukrainian website that launched a variety of web-based attacks. Treasury officials say the Bureau began using a third-party cloud service provider to host the sites last year. That company suffered an intrusion, resulting in a number of Treasury Web sites being affected.
Roger Thompson of AVG explains how he and others at the company were able to figure out that certain sites of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing were under attack.
