    Pentagon Hacked

    I just saw on the tube that the Pentagon was hacked! I haven't found anything Online yet to read about this so no link, sorry.

    P.S. If this was posted already or is rather old news by now, I apologize!

    I take it "the Pentagon was hacked" really means somebody put up some images or made some changes to text on a webserver that houses Pentagon-related web pages?

    I suppose it's kind of interesting but breaking into a public webserver, whether it's the Pentagon's or anyone else's, isn't really big news.

    But if "the Pentagon was hacked" means somebody took over computers controlling US missile systems or something, then you've got my interest!

    That's pretty good!

    Sorry for the false alarm folks. I just saw a blurb on CNN at the time with"PENTAGON HACKED" pasted across the screen, so I took it to mean something more news worthy.

    A security company was reading 'top-level' email.... Not a huge thing.... Crap the emails were in plain text, so they aren't that damn 'top-level'

    Now the company is being investigated and could face criminal charges...


    What kinda business owner would think this to be a good idea????

    'Ohh the Pentagon has computers with security holes, I think I'm going to have my employees break in, read military email, and I know the government will give me a medal and pat me on the back!'


    I'm just wondering if this CEO's first name is Tim

    And not just any business owner, but the head of a computer security firm...

    At least it is a little more interesting story than I expected. I thought it was probably that someone had turned all of the images on the "Army of One" website upside-down or something.
