Hillary's e-mail servers were unsecured, yes, that's easy enough to admit. However the leap of faith you're making in regards to any of the information that could be obtained ignores what is technically possible in the first place. It's like saying that if you can understand arithmetic, you can build a space rocket.
    You're entirely missing the point. A hacker doesn't need access to State dept servers if they're interested in Hillary's, which had no security for a full three months. During that time a hacker could obtain enough information to allow continued access even after encryption was installed and a certificate obtained. That's no big technical feat at all.

    Why do you believe the Iranian regime? Do you also ascribe to their claims regarding republican presidents?


    hahaha
    So that wasn't the drone ? Really ?

    The Iranian Government built a decoy after the US Government acknowledged in 2011 that we lost a drone over Iran ?

    If that wasn't the drone then why on December 12 2011 did the American Government request that it be returned ?

    Its pretty clear you haven't looked into this issue at all. Would it kill you to take a whole 5 minutes and Google it ?

Before Lazar exposed the email domain, it would have been known to people with whom Clinton was trading emails, as well as to a tight inner circle lucky enough to be given @clintonemail.com accounts. Those included Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, and aide Huma Abedin, whom the former secretary treats like family. Maybe Clinton and her staff thought the relative anonymity of her email domain would have given her a measure of security. It’s hard to say, since they and State Department officials have consistently refused to answer journalists questions about what security measures Clinton took to protect her “homebrew” email system......snip~

    Hillary
    It's almost like you don't know what you're talking about and it becomes clear whenever you post your blocks of text not knowing what they say:

    Hillary

    On March 14, 2013, Guccifer—his real name is Marcel-Lehel Lazar—broke into the AOL account of Sidney Blumenthal, a journalist, former White House aide to Bill Clinton, and personal confidante of Hillary Clinton. Lazar crowed about his exploits to journalists, disclosing a set of memos Blumenthal had written to Clinton in 2012, as well as the personal email address and domain she’s now known to have used exclusively for her personal and official correspondence.
    He broke into an e-mail account which can be broken into using a basic brute force attacks. Yep, sounds like a script kiddie.

    Her email account was the ultimate hacker’s lure. It’s a common technique to impersonate a trusted source via email, in order to persuade a recipient to download spyware hidden inside seemingly innocuous attachments. Indeed, Clinton’s own staff had been targeted with such highly targeted “spear phishing” emails as early as 2009, the year she took office. And according to U.S. authorities, Lazar, who’s now serving a seven-year prison sentence in Romania and is accused of hacking the accounts of other Washington notables like Colin Powell, did commandeer other people’s email accounts. Then he used them to send messages exposing the private correspondence of his other victims.
    He then used social engineering and spyware. Wow, that would definitely NOT get you into a State Dept. server. It's almost like you can't really explain how one relates to the other so you're trying your hardest to try and connect the two.

    Do you recognize what this thread is about? It's about hacking a State Dept. server supposedly, somehow related to Hillary's weak security (as admitted by the OP) even though, one attack simply can't make the other possible.

    Was it 10 missiles being launched or 2? Was it an 'advanced fighter' or cardboard? Did Isreal flood a Palestinian neighborhood with sewage? All of these lies have been perpetrated by the Iranian regime.

    If you get your information from Iran, there's no helping you. My contention is with your using them as a source.

    None of this is intelligible or even remotely connected to how one would be able to hack State Dept servers.

    Hillary’s Secret Email Was a Cyberspy’s Dream Weapon.....

    When a notorious online break-in artist got a hold of the Secretary of State’s now-infamous email address, he gave himself the power to use it to target the global elite. The private email address for Hillary Clinton, which became the talk of Washington this week and created her first major speed bump on her road to the White House, has actually been freely available on the Internet for a year, thanks to a colorful Romanian hacker known as Guccifer.

    On March 14, 2013, Guccifer—his real name is Marcel-Lehel Lazar—broke into the AOL account of Sidney Blumenthal, a journalist, former White House aide to Bill Clinton, and personal confidante of Hillary Clinton. Lazar crowed about his exploits to journalists, disclosing a set of memos Blumenthal had written to Clinton in 2012, as well as the personal email address and domain she’s now known to have used exclusively for her personal and official correspondence. Few journalists noticed that at the time, and it caused no ruckus in Washington. But the fact that Clinton’s private email was now public means she was not just putting her own information at risk, but potentially those in the circle of people who knew her private address.

    Her email account was the ultimate hacker’s lure. It’s a common technique to impersonate a trusted source via email, in order to persuade a recipient to download spyware hidden inside seemingly innocuous attachments. Indeed, Clinton’s own staff had been targeted with such highly targeted “spear phishing” emails as early as 2009, the year she took office. And according to U.S. authorities, Lazar, who’s now serving a seven-year prison sentence in Romania and is accused of hacking the accounts of other Washington notables like Colin Powell, did commandeer other people’s email accounts . Then he used them to send messages exposing the private correspondence of his other victims. Before Lazar exposed the email domain, it would have been known to people with whom Clinton was trading emails, as well as to a tight inner circle lucky enough to be given @clintonemail.com accounts. Those included Clinton’s daughter, Chelsea, and aide Huma Abedin, whom the former secretary treats like family. Maybe Clinton and her staff thought the relative anonymity of her email domain would have given her a measure of security. It’s hard to say, since they and State Department officials have consistently refused to answer journalists questions about what security measures Clinton took to protect her “homebrew” email system......

    JFC, why do you make your posts look like a ****ing Christmas Tree? It makes them hard to read. Anyway the article doesn't say he broke in to Hillary's server, so your implication that I got it wrong is bull****.

    You don't understand. Hillary gave Russia, Iran and China all the secrets on purpose. They've got all the information they need to hack everything forever no matter what we do. It's over. The bad guys got us. Take to the hills. Wolverines.

    It's absolutely insane what these people are proposing. We have a guy who doesn't understand that one thing can't make the other possible, debating that phishing, viruses and social engineering methods can be used to to hack into a State Dept. e-mail. That just boggles the mind.
