  • Who's running dozens of top-secret unpatched databases? The DHS of course

    Irony Alert

    The US Department of Homeland Security is running dozens of unpatched databases, some of which are rated "secret" and even "top secret," according to an audit.

    An inspection [PDF] of the department's IT infrastructure found huge security gaps, including the fact that 136 systems had expired "authorities to operate" – meaning that no one was in charge of keeping them updated. Of the 136, 17 were classified as "secret" or "top secret."

    Why do they even have top secret systems connected to the outside world.

      Well the evidence to date would suggest that the reason is that they're entirely staffed by morons.

        And people still wonder why we Americans have so little faith in our government. Unfortunately, this is about par for all civilian US government functions from what I can tell.
