Serious lapses uncovered in Hillary Clinton’s e-mail accounts
Acivilian approaching the USS Mahan, a US Navy destroyer at the world’s largest naval base, took a weapon from a sailor who was standing watch and used it to shoot and kill another sailor who was trying to help his embattled colleague, Navy officials said recently.
Navy security forces then killed the suspect, who was authorised to be on Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia and did not bring his own weapon on base, according to Captain Robert Clark, the base’s Commanding Officer. The identities of the civilian and the sailor who were killed have not been released.
No other injuries were reported from the encounter on the USS Mahan, a guided-missile destroyer. It wasn’t immediately clear why the civilian approached the ship or if he ever had access to it previously.
Agroup of hackers, IT bloggers, and systems analysts have uncovered serious lapses in security of clintonemail.com, the domain under which Hillary Clinton established multiple private e-mail accounts when she was Secretary of State, according to data shared with Fox News.
The findings call into question Clinton’s confident declaration, at a hastily arranged news conference in New York recently, that “there were no security breaches” in her use of a private server. One prominent figure in the hacker community, bolstered by long experience in the US intelligence community, has undertaken to build a virtual ‘replica’ of Clinton’s server configuration in a cyberlab, and has begun testing it with tools designed to probe security defences. This individual has shared details of the Clinton system not disclosed publicly but legally obtainable.
Among other things, outside experts have managed to trace the most recent location of Clinton’s server – something she did not specify during her news conference and a subject of much speculation, as the server’s physical placement would provide early clues about whether the data stored on it was adequately secured against compromise by private-sector hackers and foreign intelligence services.
Fox News had reported that, with the aid of software named Maltego, experts had established that the server is up and running, receiving connectivity to the Internet through an Atlanta-based firm called Internap Network Services Corporation.
