Just so you know where your trillions have been going

Think U.S. military computer networks are secure? Think again. A panel of computer security experts from across the U.S. government told a U.S. Senate committee yesterday that computer networks operated by the U.S. Department of Defense are so thoroughly compromised by spies from other nations that there’s almost no point in trying to keep them out.

In fairness, the rest of the article from Ark Hesseldahl at AllThingsD makes it seem like the hysteria was driven in part by the desire to get the Senate to agree to give the military even more money.

Not sure if that's entirely comforting, but hey, it's what I got. Enjoy your weekend!
