So Petraeus And Mistress Are Cyber-Illiterate? in [Market-Ticker]

It is being reported by CNBC this afternoon (I just heard it) that Petraeus and his mistress, in an attempt to conceal their email traffic, had a “shared” Gmail account and used the “drafts” folder as a means of communicating; each would sign in, write a “draft”, not send it, then the other would sign in and read it, etc.

Of course this leaves the actual text exposed all over the place, and what’s worse is that it probably leaves these “drafts” all over backup media in unencrypted form as well.

Now let’s recap:

This is the chief of our spookworks and he can’t manage to figure out how to send a secure email message to his mistress!

Oh.

My.

Ghod.

THIS is the state of so-called “cyber-security” at the highest levels of our supposedly-secure “government”?
