The Democratic Party is the party of obscurantism. But the following example of cyber-security ignorance is hilarious (WikiLeaks, http://archive.is/K3153):
“From: Palermo, Rachel Sent: Friday, April 29, 2016 2:07 PM To: Regional Press Subject: Factivists was hacked. Here is our new password Importance: High We have been compromised! But it's all ok. Here is our new password: HHQTevgHQ@z&8b6 It will now change every few weeks so prevent future issues. So as it is re-set, I will forward it along.”
This short fragment shows ignorance of basic computer security rules:
- Every user must have a separate account and password.
- Passwords are never emailed.
- If one decides to violate rules 1 and 2, at least don’t email the password to a list!
It is likely they were hacked many times in 2016, and most of these hacks were detected.
