Everybody Plays the Game

You know, you just can't make up stuff like this:

The 2006 General Accounting Office (GAO) Report has focused on the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and claims there are “significant” weaknesses in their information systems, making it vulnerable to hackers and identity thieves.

Requested by Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the 46-page report found instances of anti-virus software not installed or up to date; employees hired without proper background checks; computer passwords that are not properly updated or controlled; and a lack of physical controls such as security cameras that do not work.

It isn't even a case of who will watch the watchmen--- this has a Salavador Dali painting edge to it.

*thanks for the tip, Lisa
