“I love it when guys peel out.” (American Graffiti)
I LOVE IT WHEN GUYS SPEAK THE TRUTH!
Stephen emails to point out this bit of hilarity:
A British teenager is suspected of being a mystery hacker who infiltrated the personal email account of the director of the CIA and posting personal details online.
…It is alleged that Cracka called US Internet provider Verizon posing as a technician and persuaded them to hand over personal details of Mr Brennan’s AOL email address.He then allegedly called AOL and convinced a representative to reset the password, using the personal details he obtained from Verizon to get through security.
Yeah, OK, this is an old trick. But the kid was 15 years old at the time.
Note: this was not his government email, it was his personal account on AOL. Why the Director of the CIA is on AOL is perhaps the biggest cause for concern …
He probably uses Netscape for a browser, and drives a 1928 Porter. And has a cell phone, like this one:
And why is it these intel guys just don’t ‘get’ the concept of information security? Petraeus, this guy, and some former Secretary of State?
What’s up with THAT?
