Government = Cyber-Insecurity

As if I needed any more reason to think the government should have nothing to do with our computer security. Well, they gave me another reason not surprisingly. Apparently data on a new fighter jet was downloaded from a "secure" location and over a few terabytes of it was stolen. That means this attack was not some quick breach, it was going on for some time. Do you really want this corrupt organization, who can't even keep their own top secrets safe, trying to defend everyone in this nation, including corporations, from cyber-attacks. Many, many organizations are a lot safer than the government; why do they not go to industry experts for help? Because they are more concerned with making you think they are helping than actually making anything any better.
