I guess the big deal is its Sarah Palin .. Not your sister Yevette's account. (If somehow i guess your sisters name its pure coincidence)
Who btw (If she existed) has probably been hacked 100's of times.

I ran a torrent site for quite a while . We have to stay kinda secure obviously .

I would run the MD5 of the word "Password" Through the DB and ban all the accounts with that as a match to the PW field.

Out of 12000 accounts On average every few months (say 4) It would delete 3000 or so accounts.

The best answer would be a page full of faces . Say 30. And you have to pick the 3 that you were shown during signup and match their names to them .
So you have to pick the 3 and enter their names.

But we will probably not see that for quite some time . :/

The best thing to maybe happen from this is better security awareness for email passwords ect.. Now the people know if this could happen to her it can happen to them .
Maybe they will wake up a little . Who knows.

Personal email? ... she used it for government business despite having publically said she didn't.

Unethical...I am on the fence.

Palin has been accused in the past of using personal emails to conduct state business to circumvent Alaskan freedom of information act requests concerning her activities.

Here we see she was in fact using her personal email for governement business and that these emails would never have been vulnerable to FOIA requests or internal government probes.

I don't like the personal email addresses published etc. No Need. The AP could have investigated and verified without releasing the contacts in their entirity.

As far as all the comparison to someone breaking into your house or hacking your email....We are not public officials using our personal email to circumvent FOIA requests and internal government probes. The comparison falls apart quickly.

If she is using the email account for Governement purposes and claiming she was...well, I am on the fence whether hacking the account to expose a lie is unethical.

My crap-o meter is going off. I seriously doubt this lurker is the real deal.

I am just sad that Wikileaks put out this info. They should have kept quiet, and kept on monitoring the Email account.

I am sure this person, from Alaska, has a lot of skeletons in her closet. Wikileaks should have waited until a truly damaging skeleton jumped out...

As for the site, I think it is gone, at least I can't manage to get in. Not even to their main page, Wikileaks.Org...

Try dumping your cache. WikiLeaks is still available. I just pulled up the site a moment ago.

rubicon10 is a ruse, although the basics of the story are fairly accurate. What better way to stir more drama than to link the hacking to a Democratic activist? I call troll. Troll /b/, Troll the Media, Troll the Vote '08. I have a feeling we are going to see more of this, but they'll string it out for as long as possible, and loling all the way.

Bill "F'it, we'll do it live" O'Reilly is especially lulzy. I'm sure he'll stick it to that "despicable, slimy, scummy" website.

Breaking news in TN,

More info soon.

Okay so ive been thinking about this story since it broke out... and what i am really wondering, is how do they know anonymous did this? i havent heard any claims From anonymous saying they did this.

what if the end result of this is them just having a viable example to show why the internet needs to be more secured.

Here's a much more lengthy article on the alleged email hacker:

Memphis Lawmaker: Son Talked About in Sarah Palin Email Hacking Investigation

MEMPHIS, TN – A Memphis lawmaker told a radio talk show host that his son is in the center of internet chatter in connection with the hacking of Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin’s private email.

Tennessee State Rep. Mike Kernell told WREC radio talk show host Mike Fleming that his son, 20 year-old David has been named in several internet discussions and websites as being investigated in the hacking. David Kernell is a student at the University of Tennessee.

Details emerged Thursday behind the break-in of Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin's e-mail account, including a first-hand account suggesting it was vulnerable because a hacker was able to impersonate her online to obtain her password.

as well it should.

Our nation is being destroyed. Not by Bush (who has done a poor job of maintaining it). But rather by people who are political activists. Our campaigns no longer have anything to do with competance (Obama has 3 years in government office, and he is the "best shot choice" of the Dems?). It has more to do with gossip, innuendo, and character smears.

American politics has become cheap. While i love my country, I am ashamed of what our politics has become.

They found out that they could use the sock puppets of the "blogosphere" to do their dirty work and "rough up" the competitors.

Pathetic. And our nation is worse because of it.

I hope the dweeb that got into her email account does a several years in federal or state prision. I've been in IT for 15+ years and I'm tired of these jerks getting away with this garbage. And don't for a second think that the idiots who hosted the stolen mail can continue to pretend they are covered by the 1st amendment. All of this is going to come back to haunt them, Bamma better hope these idiots aren't affiliated with his campain or the democrats for that matter either.

I guess it's ok for the government to spy on us, but not ok for them to be spied on?

How easy would it be to pretend you hacked some ones email, and then post stuff that you made up? How can you prove such a hack was in fact legitimate, and would it be lawful to extract that proof. Being that this hack was a major violation of privacy, there is no way of determining if this was a legitimate hack, or a bunch of made up nonsense.

In other words, it is a waste of time talking about it. It is all hypothetical conjecture, or in plain terms, pure nonsense.

This is great.

It is OK for the government to secretly access your emails and tap your phone via the efforts of some anonymous government hacker (Cyber Warfare Specialist).

But should The people Anonymously access so much as a yahoomail account, the jig is up for them. The could say they suspect palin of 'terrorist sympathizing' and play the gov's own card. Amerika Das Uber Alles?

It is like now how you can taze someone to death, and then say it was a syndrome and TAZER International will provide experts to testify on your behalf just to protect themselves from a precedent being set.

Given the amount of time the Government has leaked the American People's personal data into a public forum or has lost millions of files - this sort of thing just reeks of hypocrisy.

Except for the ensuing "cover-up' that followed the release of the contents of the e-mail account.

Wikileaks is now out of commission, and this has happened to them before upon publishing sensitive material or data deemed vital to national interests and security.

This sort of thing cannot be dismissed out of hand. You must not let your ignorance be your Muse, you must not be an ignoramus. Investigating the matter beyond the scope of the OP doesn't hurt things much either, in fact it helps.
