New Inspector General Report Says Department of Homeland Security Public Websites Remain Insecure and Vulnerable to Cyberattack

The current administration will likely use the Inspector General's report saying that DHS websites are vulnerable to attack or the eventual false flag cyber attack to take full control of the Internet with some type of iPatriot Act or similar cyberprotection legislation.

“Overall,” the report said, “ DHS components have followed department policy when configuring operating systems supporting their websites. Recommended security settings and controls were implemented consistently on the servers reviewed. In addition, sites using electronic authentication for web-based access were properly documented according to FISMA. However, patch management practices and periodic security assessments were not consistently being performed, resulting in numerous critical system vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities could put DHS data at risk."
