    Yet another government hack.. When will they learn?

    Today's news was rife with yet another government agency getting hacked, compromising the SSN and many other 'data points' for Millions of federal agents/workers/people who had backround checks.

    When the heck will these dunderheads learn, STOP keeping the dam data on computer systems accessible to the outside world like this?

    The worst part is that background investigations have been halted. We just hired two new employees and neither one can get a CAC card because they don't have a clearance yet. The contract is firm fixed price so the government pays them anyways even though they are literally useless right now. I'm hearing other contractors are raising a stink about this. If people can't get clearances the contracts can possibly go into default since the contractor can no longer provide the people required. They said it could be a couple of months before these clearances get done.

    If a contractor is unable to perform a contract due to something beyond the control of the contractor (i.e. Govt delay in clearing employees) then they should not be held in default.

    In many cases the contractor may even be entitled to a compensable delay, so looking at the bright side you could be getting a bigger Christmas bonus this year!.....

    If so, you can send a Big Thank You card to the Bush/Clinton/Bush/Obama charlatans for allowing technology transfers to the Communists in exchange for Corporate campaign donations and kickbacks

    You seem to think the Executive Branch of our government runs the computer security programs at individual government agencies.

    It's not. Because, this is all by design.

    I seem to think that the Executive Branch is responsible for holding its own administration accountable. Where is the accountability AA?

    Of course it is. It's not an accident that our country is in decline. It's deliberate.
