Vulnerabilities Highlight the Need for More
Effective Web Security Management

So it seems that the OIG finally caught up wth DHS about their poor internet security. The OIG hired some consultants and poked the DHS.gov site and others. What came out was, well, they were rather weak on the security thing. This is nothing new, I have been googling around their stuff for some time now and in fact, they and often the LEO’s that they pass data too leak said data like a sieve much of the time. I cannot tell you how many documents end up on wikileaks because of their problems… Never mind how much they may have been hacked by foreign powers or the kiddies.

What makes me laugh the most is that they have redacted the report with yellow highlight but failed to remove the listing of all the sites that they audited! Hey kids! C’mon over to these here sites! They’re vulnerable!
