Government computer security still sucks

For most of us who know anything about computers or the Internet, it’s been no secret that security on government computer systems has never been much good. Now finally the rest of the world is finding this out as well.

Fox News reports that the President’s Information Technology Advisory Committee released a report (PDF) on government computer security. The report states that the government is favoring “band-aid” fixes over long-term security solutions that actually provide security.

Thanks again to Security Awareness for Ma, Pa and the Corporate Clueless.
