Feds Can't Protect Their Own Secure Data

From this morning’s WSJ:

Law-enforcement officials found “a number of operational vulnerabilities” involving “black boxes” used by several departments to control the release of sensitive economic data such as the monthly unemployment rate, according to a report by the inspector general at the Commerce Department.

The report said it was possible to subvert the system, which was designed to prevent media companies from sending economic data to traders early.

But don’t worry. Your medical records will be all like totally safe with the completely secure and non-partisan IRS.
