Want To Know How China Was Able To Hack Us? Because Obama OUTSOURCED To China!

Unfreaking believable… it just gets worse and worse. This level of incompetence smacks of being deliberate. So we outsourced the data management to a consultant in Argentina, whose co-worker was in China. They didn’t have to hack us, they walked right on in, with credentials and an invite. Seriously, if we were handing our intel over to our enemies on purpose, would we be doing anything differently? The information from 14 million government workers or more was taken – it makes a joke of our national security and opens us up to countless threats. Another coup by Obama’s minions.


Office of Personnel Management Director Katherine Archuleta would be happy to
discuss the particulars of the OPM brief with Congress—in a classified briefing.

From Weasel Zippers:

Via SooperMexican:

The technical details are a little difficult here so let’s put it this way – idiotic and utterly incompetent government officials outsourced IT management of highly sensitive information to companies that had some workers in China, and gave them complete and total access to that database.

From Ars Technica:

Some of the contractors that have helped OPM [Office of Personnel Management] with managing internal data have had security issues of their own—including potentially giving foreign governments direct access to data long before the recent reported breaches. A consultant who did some work with a company contracted by OPM to manage personnel records for a number of agencies told Ars that he found the Unix systems administrator for the project “was in Argentina and his co-worker was physically located in the [People’s Republic of China]. Both had direct access to every row of data in every database: they were root. Another team that worked with these databases had at its head two team members with PRC passports. I know that because I challenged them personally and revoked their privileges. From my perspective, OPM compromised this information more than three years ago and my take on the current breach is ‘so what’s new?’”

More from Ars Technica here.

I listened to part of Katherine Archuleta’s testimony and trust me when I say the woman is deeply stupid. We can spend $250 million on Obama’s vacations, but we can’t spend the money to secure our government networks? We can’t even bother with encryption evidently. No, we need to outsource to foreign entities and not even check where those ‘consultants’ are. Good grief. 11 major systems out of 47 of OPM’s have not been properly certified as secure — these are not contractor systems, but systems operated by OPM’s own IT department. And 65 percent of OPM’s data was stored on those uncertified systems. Chaffetz pointed out in his opening statement that for the past eight years, according to OPM’s own Inspector General reports, “OPM’s data security posture was akin to leaving all your doors and windows unlocked and hoping nobody would walk in and take the information.” Chaffetz is right, except I think we intentionally invited the enemy in. And now, nothing will be done about it.
