Numerous reports have been flying around the intertubes that Sarah Palin’s personal Yahoo email was hacked and items from her mailbox were posted on the internet. Â Wikileaks states that the email was hacked around midnight Tuesday Sept. 16th by personsÂ affiliatedÂ with the group ‘anonymous‘. Â Numerous screenshots, contacts, and family photos have been posted on the WikileaksÂ website. Â It is interesting that she was just asked a few days earlier to release over 1000 emailsÂ from the same private account she has been apparently using conductÂ governmentÂ business. Â
Chris EngÂ (guest on Securabit Episode 7) has posted some commentary on what he thinks might have happened to the account. Â What are your thoughts on this matter? Â Is this all fair game and the whole mailbox should be released or justÂ despicable?
UPDATE: Apparently ‘Anonymous’ might not be tooÂ anonymousÂ for long. Â The screenshot posted listed almost the whole proxy address, which will make it much easier to find in a log. Â Unless they used their neighbors wi-fi. 🙂
