California DMV thinks "INFOS3C" is a dirty word

The California DMV has rejected Opendns founder David Ulevitch's application for an "1NFOS3C" vanity license plate because it includes "a term of lust or depravity."

The state agency, which warehouses potentially compromising data on tens of millions of Americans, experienced at least one breach in recent years -- this latest judgment suggests that the agency is still struggling to come to grips with the nuances of information security.
