Is this all covered under free speech or expression?

They couldn’t have gotten that many, because I stopped by the other day and took a bunch.

Hackers said they were able to get credit card numbers because they weren’t encrypted. It would be interesting to to find out if they got server access or just database access.

“from Stratfor, the highly respected U.S. security think tank”

LOL.

BigGovernment.com is turning into just another tabloid whirlednutzdaily type outfit.

(If you don’t know what I’m talking about, there are hundreds if not thousands of FR threads in the archives where StratFor has predicted 579 of the last 12 regional military conflicts.)

PLI is far more concerned about the state of the classified information provided by STRATFOR to the US Government.

STRATFOR maintains separate classified and unclassified networks and information, and PLI understands that none of the STRATFOR data has been spared the attention of the hacking group. Of course, had STRATFOR placed any classified data on the server which we know has been hacked, they’d be in blatant violation of the laws of the US and of common sense, but it’s against the law why? Because it’s happened before.

If classified data has been compromised in the hack, it will create a larger impact – and response – than if it is unclassified commercial intel. Again, it’s supposed to be totally separately stored, and I’ve spoken at length about the misconception by folks who conflate “classified” with “important,” but if there were errors, this could be bad.

Didn’t they claim they were going to crash Wall Street’s computers?

I got hacked.
Terribly vulnerable feeling.
My son had to wipe my computer of everything.
I think all hackers should be killed.
Then their families and should be infected with a virus that can be removed for $59.95, at Best Buy
I’m serious...I never wanted someone to die so bad, as when I got hacked.

Maybe there was the typical governemental security strategy. A public ftp server and a text message like “Top Secret! Just for authorized personell”.
