Federal inspectors have detailed yet another security breach at one of the nation's oldest nuclear weapons plants.Sadly, this is nothing new. Remember The Alamos. Well, at least we know how to fix it, more government. Seriously, aren't there more competent private security firms, and wouldn't it be worth it?
There may have been dozens of security violations involving the use of unauthorized laptop computers being brought into secure areas of the Y-12 plant at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee, according to a report released by the Department of Energy's inspector general...
...inspectors discovered that as many as 37 additional laptops may have been brought into the plant's limited area without following proper security protocols.
Nine of those laptops were later taken out of the country, including two of which were taken to countries on DOE's sensitive countries list.
According to the report, the contractors involved in the incident were immediately removed from the facility and their unclassified e-mail accounts were suspended.
The laboratory has suffered at least two other security breaches in the last year.
