Skip to comments.IRS using WINXP? and no money to upgrade

Hmmm.. The excuse given tonight at the hearings
So I do not see any way that they can administer ACA. If they cannot keep up with ms. Lerner'semail- asimple task. how could they keep up with your healthcare
So they have no excuse. If they were on Windows 8, totally understandable, but XP is fine.
... “the evil republicans cut the IRS budget so much they didn’t have adequate computer service” in 3,2,1.....
i have used xp since 2001 and my mail system never crashed. i am sure the nsa could dig up my emails if asked.
They can't arrest Lois and take her stuff, but they can arrest you and take your stuff.
A locked down XP system running on appropriate hardware and with concurrent software is just fine to do e-mail.
I believe that Lois Lerner is in violation of IRS code
301.7216 for unlawfully disclosing taxpayer info to a third party.
1 year in jail and $1,000 fine for each occurrence.
All that “bonus” money paid out wouldn’t have worked?
Yes but that $2 Billion is focused on tracking every single penny Americans spend, save, or make. Every day, every penny, all the time, with real time access.
Eventually they’ll file our taxes for us.
Lack of backups is a significantly larger security issue then running XP.
Beside they can still buy support for XP.
$2 billion just doesn’t buy what it used to.
Oh there are a significant number of laws and regulations she’s broken. IRS Regs, and Federal laws
What if you needed a heart transplant or Kidney and they lost your Email about it? Oh wait, that sounds like the VA.
It all ok though he’s going to upgrade them all to Windows 7...
I run a dozen CNC machines, plotters, inspection equipment, laser cutters, and various other shop machinery that all run on XP. Even the old laptops I have for shop computers are networked with legacy versions of high end engineering software. It all runs fine. I have had exactly 1 hard drive crash in my entire 20 year career using computers (heck I started out using old cassette tapes on a computer my pops made from a sheet of plywood). I never lost more than a couple days worth of work. I have recovered hard drives I accidentally wiped out with $20 utilities.
The IRS are liars.
I did the final security assessment for one of the state health exchanges. It involved connections to the IRS among other agencies.
There are a lot of regulations/laws they have broken, and thats not even touching the laws not involving IT security.
Bureaucratic arrogance on parade. This is a French Revolution moment.
Especially since your emails do not RESIDE on your hard drive.
Koskinen made a slip when he said “del - lost” emails of Lois Lerner. [He was starting to say “deleted emails but caught himself halfway and said
‘del - lost”.
