Well, the FBI just released some more information from the email probe and it would seem that comey lied, yet again, when he said they were unable to verify if anyone gained unauthorized access to her secret server.

Here's what is in the new report (pg 140/229):

Based on redacted statements and log information, the FBI assesses redacted was accessed without authorization on january 5, 2013. It remains unknown how redacted credentials were compromised and if any information was exfiltrated from her inbox.


This is a pretty direct contradiction to his statement iirc.

Flynn set precedent so I am sure he will be charged soon right?

Maybe he didn't intend to lie?
It just happened when he opened his mouth.

Can you refresh my memory about what Comey said?
Better yet, provide a direct quote.

link no good ....
With respect to potential computer intrusion by hostile actors, we did not find direct evidence that Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail domain, in its various configurations since 2009, was successfully hacked. But, given the nature of the system and of the actors potentially involved, we assess that we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence.

It appears they are talking about an email account that was compromised. It says the account was hosted on the server, but does the server itself have to be compromised to access the account?

...also in question, from the third paragraph:

“...I have not coordinated or reviewed this statement in any way with the Department of Justice or any other part of the government. They do not know what I am about to say.”

I thought Stzrok (or somebody) helped draft the exoneration, ergo “coordinated,” right?...

Comey's statement is quite specific, "Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail domain." Because of the redaction, we can't determine if the compromised account was part of that domain. So there is some ambiguity.

So if I access work-related emails at home with proper credentials, I am still compromising, or hacking, which was the term used, the server?

It does not look as though the server was hacked in this particular case. The email account was accessed without proper authorization, without access to the entire servers content.

No , you are logging in to the email server.
Completely legit.
You are either playing naive or do not understand how an email (and email relay) servers work.
And I dont have time and space to explain

It had to be....
"Jeez , Louise...."
Research domains ( or MS forest and trees)
Domain is the legacy term.

So it wasn't a server hacking? They just accessed the email account, unauthorized of course?

I am not privy to all of the in and outs of email systems, but I understand the words being used.

Unfortunately there are alot of self proclaimened enlightened geniuses around here playing really dumb the last few days.
You don't have to explain anything to them, it won't do you any good. Yesterday he was arguing about how the definition of the word Justice is completely different depending on if you are a Democrat or a republican...lol

I know what a domain is. I know that Clinton's server carried several domains. I don't know if the email account which was accessed was Clinton's personal email domain. I do know that Comey specified Clinton's personal email domain.

You are correct and I think I am being to broad in my looking at this. It's not about the server.

Comey's claim was specific about the domain.

Accessing any account with stolen credentials is still a hack


Hackers mostly use one of two main ways to get access to your site—exploiting code vulnerabilities and stealing credentials of valid users. Taking advantage of code vulnerabilities takes specialized skills. So, while this still happens, it is not as popular as credential stealing.

Hackers would much rather use an easier and more reliable way to unlock a door into your site—taking over your users’ accounts. It is the most popular way to gain unauthorized access these days. According to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report (VDBIR) using stolen credentials has been the number one attack vector for web applications for the past two years.


Hacking Happens: Stolen Credentials

Saying someone accessing an account with stolen credentials does not necessarily mean they got access to the server is like saying you know someone was in your bedroom without authorization, but they weren't in your house.

"There you go again"
How would you access your email on an email server without YOUR credentials ?
Your statement should not have made sense to anyone whatsoever .
The only way you could not log in on a personal device is if the company forbid it or you had to access an "intranet" to get there.

No , how else would you have accessed an email server (or relay) without credentials ?
Your credentials are stored on that EMAIL SERVER in that DOMAIN
And you HAVE to HAVE those BEFORE you ACCESS your EMAIL
So , yes , the authentication part is on the server .
Enough....
