Government has shoddy wireless security

The GAO has found that nine of twenty four major governmental agencies have not released wireless-security plans and of the six agencies tested, the WiFi signals were not masked (meaning they were broadcasting SSIDs probably) and there was evidence of unauthorized activity as well on all six tested networks.

Personal note: Did you expect anything else from the government? I’ve heard stories that would make most system administrators cringe on the shoddy IT policies and staff within the government.
