+ - SPAM: IRS information security still hurting

Submitted by alphadogg
alphadogg (971356) writes "The Internal Revenue Service continues to have "pervasive" information security weaknesses that put taxpayer information at risk, and it has made limited progress in fixing dozens of problems the U.S. Government Accountability Office has previously identified, according to a GAO report released Tuesday. The IRS, the tax-collecting arm of the U.S. government, has "persistent information security weaknesses that place [it] at risk of disruption, fraud or inappropriate disclosure of sensitive information," the GAO report said. The agency, which collected about US$2.7 trillion in taxes in 2007, has fixed just 29 of 98 information security weaknesses identified in a report released last March, the new report said."
