Re: [lists] Re: [Full-disclosure] IT security professionals in demand in 2006

lol this explains why the us-gov seems to be constantly hacked according to

and their own tests on cyber security are always bad year after year even
though they spend so

money goes, but i guess
we all know where it goes lets not get political.
