WikiLeaks Releases CIA Director’s Hacked Emails


Nation of Change has the article WikiLeaks Releases CIA Director’s Hacked Emails. This is just too good to pass up recording this on this blog.

Unbeknownst to the hacker, Brennan had forwarded government documents, including an application form with Brennan’s personal information, geopolitical strategies for Iran, and positions concerning the legalities of torture, from his government work email address to his personal AOL account. Other emails contained the personal information and Social Security numbers of over a dozen top U.S. intelligence officials as well as Brennan’s own personal info, including his home address, date of birth, phone numbers, etc.

In a memo titled “The Conundrum of Iran,” Brennan wrote, “The World Wars of the 20th Century and their aftermath made Iran a pawn of global politics, as illustrated by the CIA-engineered overthrow of Prime Minister Mossadegh in 1953, which allowed the pro-U.S. Shah to return to power and rule with an iron hand for the next 25 years.”

So many top U.S. intelligence officials are unable to maintain basic security over sensitive data with the most recent hacked private email account of CIA Director John Brennan. Are these hackers confirming that the wrong people have been leading this country for far too long?

Read the details of how the hacker social engineered his way into the accounts. You should think carefully about your own accounts after reading the details.
