Instead of busily unmasking surveillance of Team Trump, maybe Team Obama should have looked after their own security!
Clinton and Manning weren’t the only embarrassing security breaches during the Obama administration.
A 15-year-old boy tricked his way into getting Classified docs.
It wasn’t even a ‘Russian Hack’. It was something far simpler than that. And it landed him information on intelligence operations in Afghanistan and Iran.
A court heard young Kane Gamble used ‘social engineering’ to gain access to the personal and work accounts of some of America’s top spy chiefs, according to The Telegraph.
Social engineering is basically setting up a situation where the victim divulges confidential and private information.
How sophisticated was it? Well…
The teen reportedly persuaded call handlers that he was John Brennan, who was CIA director at the time, and gained access to his computers.
He also rang an FBI helpdesk and convinced them he was Mark Guiliano, who was the agency’s Deputy Director, in order to gain access to an intelligence database.
So it really wasn’t all that much hacking, just really good voice acting. He also aimed his target at the US Secretary of Homeland Security as well as Barack Obama’s Director of National Intelligence, all from his bedroom.
From his bedroom.
What is this, Matthew Brodderick in 1983’s ‘Wargames’?
This is ridiculous.
How lax WERE security protocols on Obama’s watch?
Instead of a special investigation into Russia, maybe we need to find out just how many holes in our security and procedures need urgent replacing.
Gamble pleaded guilty to ten offences under the Computer Misuse Act, and admitted to gaining different levels of access to Mr Brennan’s online profiles by getting call handlers to rewrite security questions.
Eventually, he had access to emails, contacts, iCloud and Mr Brennan’s wife’s iPad.
He started a group called ‘Crackas With Attitude’. No, really. That’s what we were up against.
Come on. What are we looking at, amateur hour?
Was ANYBODY’s information secure?
NSA is spying on elected officials.
Secure information is accessible to a 15-year-old-kid and we’re supposed to believe that nobody gained access to Hillary’s details?
It gets worse.
Since his arrest, he has been evaluated by medical experts, who argue Gamble, now 18, is on the autism spectrum and has the mental development of a 12 or 13-year-old.Source: DailyMail
Mental development of a 12- or 13-year-old?
So the FBI and CIA were effectively conned by a 12-year-old?
Well, that’s not unsettling at all.
What’s next? Will we find out that DHS is running out of a server farm in China? Or maybe Russia?
