+ - IRS security faults leave taxpayer data at risk->

Submitted by coondoggie
coondoggie (973519) writes "In this the heavy tax season where billions of dollars and tons of personal information is relayed to and from the government, it’s more disconcerting to hear that the Internal Revenue Service is still struggling to keep private information secure. A report out today from watchdogs at the Government Accountability Office says about 69% of the tax agency’s previously noted security flaws remain unfixed and continue to jeopardize the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of IRS’s systems. The problems put the IRS at increased risk of unauthorized disclosure, modification, or destruction of financial and taxpayer information, the GAO concluded.
