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

    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.
