EVERY telecom manager in the friggin' country knows how to plug this security hole!

How could this happen to a government agency? Because the Affirmative Action 'points' awarded to less qualified federal job candidates vaults them past their more qualified peers on the government's hiring list.

So if our government DELIBERATELY hires the less technically qualified candidate in favor of AA criteria, we are going to get exactly what we deserve.

There's an old saying,'Make something idiot-proof, and you'll have lots of idiots using it.'
