TSA exposes data on website

Leave a comment

Sounds like the Transportation Security Administration has a little issue with information security. Consumerist reports that the website TSA operated to allow misidentified flyers to get their names off the no-fly list (bane of toddlers everywhere) has been operating for months without the proper security in place. Security flaws included no SSL on submission forms, and expired SSL certificates where it was in place. The security flaws were made public by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in a report last Friday.
