Report: Obama helicopter security breached


www.msnbc.msn.com

A company that monitors peer-to-peer file-sharing networks has discovered a potentially serious security breach involving President Barack Obama's helicopter, NBC affiliate WPXI in Pittsburgh reported Saturday.

Employees of Tiversa, a Cranberry Township, Pa.-based security company that specializes in peer-to-peer technology, reportedly found engineering and communications information about Marine One at an IP address in Tehran, Iran.

Bob Boback, CEO of Tiversa, told WPXI-TV: "We found a file containing entire blueprints and avionics package for Marine One, which is the president's helicopter."

It never seizes to amaze me how careless people can be. People put in charge of housing important blueprints and avionics information overlook a file-sharing program? How does that happen are they completely dense?

I bet there is a mountain of information that has slipped through the cracks due to terrible management and security.

How are Marine One's heli specs in Iran not surprising?

Speaking of security... I was under the impression that the news team that covered the presidential parade (yeah yeah, I know..which one?) carelessly aired to any potentially interested parties, the armored car specs-and thus it's weaknesses. Now they are gonna HAVE TO re survey to make sure things are error free.

The wheel wells for instance. The close up on the wheel wells had me thinking of the proximity of the back seat. The close up on the wheel wells coupled with the speaking of the newscaster, had me thinking that the wheels wells were not armored. The fact that I could see the wheel wells... tends me to believe that a sniper could see the wheel wells. It is the armpit shot. I hope they fix it, it it needs fixing. Ie: if it isn't armored there.

If it isn't-tisk tisk! How embarrassing.
If they are-I thought all that for nothing.



Not that I think those thoughts for myself-just that I am aware that others think those thoughts, and as such, I think them in that context.

or it could just be another excuse to demonize iran
the report is from main stream media so i would question it's validity,'a company that monitors peer to peer networks' i'm not buying it.
sooner or later iran is going to get attacked.
