This should make all of us feel better when filing our Taxes next year.

October 13, Nextgov - (National) IRS can't update woefully out-of-date Windows server because it can't find some of them. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at the U.S. Department of the Treasury released a report which found that the Internal Revenue Service was unable to locate 1,300 workstations during its attempt to update its Microsoft software from Windows XP to Windows 7. The report also determined that the bureau had several thousand servers still running Windows Server 2003 and lacked proper oversight, among other security risks.

Don't you feel good that all your tax information is secure, sitting on old outdated machines and software! The things the IRS gets away with!
