Palin Yahoo Email Hacked

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.  Wikileaks states that the email was hacked around midnight Tuesday Sept. 16th by persons affiliated with the group ‘anonymous‘.  Numerous screenshots, contacts, and family photos have been posted on the Wikileaks website.  It is interesting that she was just asked a few days earlier to release over 1000 emails from the same private account she has been apparently using conduct government business.  

Chris Eng (guest on Securabit Episode 7) has posted some commentary on what he thinks might have happened to the account.  What are your thoughts on this matter?  Is this all fair game and the whole mailbox should be released or just despicable?

UPDATE: Apparently ‘Anonymous’ might not be too anonymous for long.  The screenshot posted listed almost the whole proxy address, which will make it much easier to find in a log.  Unless they used their neighbors wi-fi. 🙂

    I think wikileaks sometimes holds stuff till they get money from some journalists.

    I'm guessing these things are completely fake anyway.
    Palin is tanking…why do anything to give her any more sympathy votes. She's polarizing enough. Talk about the economy and leave her alone.

    On a happier note, National Talk Like A Pirate Day is coming up on Friday, 9/19!
