Last year the TSA approved and started rolling out full-body imaging scanners to airports across the land. And the people? They were not so happy to find out that TSA agents were getting peeks at their privates. So, in somewhat of a surprise, the TSA is actually doing something about it. Over the rest of the year the agency will be sending software updates to the machines (which are used in 40 airports) that will deal with the problem. Their solution? Generic bodies.

The new software will replace the naked images of travelers with generic body outlines. When the scanner finds something out of the ordinary it will highlight it on the generic image. "This software upgrade enables us to continue providing a high level of security through advanced imaging technology screening, while improving the passenger experience at checkpoints," TSA Administrator John Pistole said in a statement. It is unclear just how much of the scanned images (which are still being taken) will still be stored on the TSA's computers, but in theory they are already supposed to be deleted after 20 seconds.

Now if only the TSA would do something about actually providing a high level of security without making regular people feel like criminals. Also, if it really wants the people's support, maybe doing something about that reputation for hiring not-so-smart and sometimes crooked agents would be a good way to keep the momentum?
