Your tax dollars at work. US physics lab Fermilab exposes proprietary data for all to see | Ars Technica
Multiple unsecured entry points allowed researchers to access data belonging to Fermilab, a national particle physics and accelerator lab supported by the Department of Energy.
Fermilab is administered by a bunch of universities, grouped together as the Fermi Research Alliance.
I was a bit surprised to see - via subsequent research - that there is still so much going on at Fermilab. I guess I stopped paying attention once the Tevatron accelerator shut down in 2011.
I wonder what the security at all of those universities would be.
