Hackers Abounding


For John, BLUFWhy can't she just admit it was a mistake.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



This is from Reporter Chris Smith of Boy Genius Report (BGR)"Teen who hacked CIA director’s email hits Director of National Intelligence next".

Remember the teenage hackers who managed to break into CIA director John Brennan’s email account several times?  It looks like they’re back doing the same sort of activity, and this time they’ve targeted Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

The news comes from Motherboard, which has been in contact with members of the “Crackas With Attitude” hacker group.  A hacker identified at “Cracka” said he broke into various accounts connected to Clapper, including home telephone, Internet, personal email, his wife’s Yahoo email, and Verizon FiOS account.

OK, so if some hacker took down the Director of Central Intelligence, what are the odds some hacker took down the Secretary of State's home system?  Some Hacker who hacks for the fun of it, or the challenge, would be good news.  Not so good news would be a hacker from Russia or China or North Korea or Daesh, or France.
