Submission + - Homeland Security: "New Scanners Have Issues." (wired.com)

Fluffeh writes: "Although the DHS has spent around $90 million upgrading magnetometers with the new nudie scanners, federal investigators “identified vulnerabilities in the screening process” at domestic airports using so-called “full body scanners,” according to a classified internal Department of Homeland Security report. Exactly how bad the body scanners are is not being divulged publicly, but the Inspector General report made eight separate recommendations on how to improve screening. To quiet privacy concerns, the authorities are also spending $7 million to “remove the human factor from the image review process” and replace the passenger’s image with an avatar."
