Author: JT Smith

From USA Today: "A government payroll computer center in Denver is fraught

records, congressional investigators said Tuesday.

The General Accounting Office, the investigative arm of Congress, faulted the
National Business Center for not adequately securing its computer network, not
investigating suspicious access patterns and having lax physical security."
