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.
