The problem is in the process of being addressed. But for now, an enormous security breach is even larger than previously thought.

  • This is just too stupid for words.
    What possible (bad) explanation could they have for this?

  • Saw this on fox news and cnn. The Pentagon is downplaying this story and I suppose for good reason...they don't want to open a can of worms. Apparently they solved the problem... and applied a better form of encryption in a matter of one or two hours.
