FBI Investigating Unisys For Not Preventing US Gov't Computers From Getting Hacked

Following the stories of Chinese hackers breaking into US Defense Department computers, it appears that the FBI is investigating Unisys for its inability to prevent those and other hacks. Apparently, the government is paying Unisys $1 billion to manage the computer systems for the Department of Homeland Security -- which would include preventing them from being hacked. Unisys, for its part, claims that its intrusion protection system worked and it reported the security incidents. Of course, from the sound of things, the hacks still occurred so whatever "warnings" Unisys sent didn't quite do the job. Of course, the FBI isn't really one to talk about the inability to keep computer systems working.
