WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon says it has toughened up security procedures since the website WikiLeaks released thousands of secret war logs.

The Defense Department chose Sunday, with the latest WikiLeaks material coming to light, to give some details about precautions against more unauthorized releases.

Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman is condemning the latest release — this time of State Department memos.

Whitman says since August the Pentagon has changed its rules for using flash drives or similar storage devices. It has also changed the way classified material is moved into unclassified computer systems.

The Pentagon is trying to make it harder for a single person to steal secrets.

An Army specialist is the prime suspect in the theft of some of the material from Wikileaks.
