How Sarah Palin's Email got "Hacked"
First of all, this video is not a political attack on any of the candidates. This video is meant to illustrate how sometimes security is not so much a "technical problem" as it is a "Wow, I did not think of that" problem. The PaulDotCom guys like to say "There's no patch for human stupidity", but I'll soft spin that by saying "There's not patch for human naiveté"
In this video I'll reconstruct how Sarah Palin's email account got compromised based on the materials I've read. I'm hoping it will be useful to journalists who don't really seem to have a grasp on the story.
