Tech News for Saturday March 5th 2016


So my life sucks right now and hackers suck and should just die…. The IRS was hacked last month and I just filed my taxes and found out someone already filed my taxes and got a tax return so apparently someone stole my social number during that latest hack. It’s the government, you’d think they’d have better security or maybe how about letting people know their social number was stolen? I was reading and it could take up to six month to get my refund now, I really need that money as I need major work done on my car and of course to just pay bills. I don’t know, I just know that I wish hackers would actually maybe think about the little people they’re hurting when they do stuff like this..
