CMS Computer Security Issues: I thought I posted about this already, but if I did, I can't find it. Anyhoo, the Governmental Accountability Office has uncovered a lot of weaknesses in the computer systems of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, weaknesses that put at risk the privacy of the medical and personal information of Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries. There's no evidence of an actual breach, just lots of opportunities for breaches to occur. The actual GAO report is here.

UPDATE: the New York Times reports on the subject here.
