American taxpayers face a smaller risk of being audited by the IRS, as the agency struggles with its own budget problems. Afterall, the less you make, the less you have to worry- and that's even less than before. Plus, heartbleed is apparently going to cost us a lot of money. A quarter of internet users have stopped or cut way back on online purchases in fear that their data will be exposed. And businesses have been exposed because the "keys" to their websites have been laid bare. IT overtime alone is costing businesses millions right now as they desperately attempt to update code and reassure consumers.

American taxpayers face a smaller risk of being audited by the IRS, as the agency struggles with its own budget problems. Afterall, the less you make, the less you have to worry- and that’s even less than before. Plus, heartbleed is apparently going to cost us a lot of money. A quarter of internet users have stopped or cut way back on online purchases in fear that their data will be exposed. And businesses have been exposed because the “keys” to their websites have been laid bare. IT overtime alone is costing businesses millions right now as they desperately attempt to update code and reassure consumers.
