This Congressional report details serious vulnerabilities in the governmentäó»s efforts to protect its own civilian computers and networks, and the critical, sensitive information they contain. The report compiles problems identified in over 40 audits, investigations and reviews by agency Inspectors General (IG), the Government Accountability Office (GAO) and others. In many cases, simple fixes like using stronger passwords, and applying patches and updates in a timely manner, would fix critical vulnerabilities. The report highlights numerous government cyber failures, including: Last February, hackers broke into the U.S. Emergency Alert System and broadcast warnings of zombie attacks to several U.S. cities.; Internal Revenue Service (IRS) computers were been found to have literally thousands of serious vulnerabilities because critical software patches have not been installed; and in 2012, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)mishandled and potentially exposed critically sensitive information, including diagrams of how to hack into trading exchanges. This is a print on demand report.
