COLUMBIA, S.C. - Hacker gains access to 3.6 million SC tax returns - State & Regional - TheState.com So, apparently the state has been storing our tax returns, with credit/debit card info and Social Security numbers, in fucking UNENCRYPTED FILES!!! I can understand maybe a small business like FunPub not having the best IT resources available, but this is the damned STATE GOVERNMENT! Why in God's name would they not know that storing sensitive data UNENCRYPTED could be dangerous!? Haven't they at least seen one of those LifeLock commercials? The only thing I can laugh about here is that FunPub saved me from having my card compromised this time, since I already had to replace that card back in February.
