Submission + - Password cracked for secret NATO document (wikileaks.org)

thomasdn writes: "The encryption password for a secret document relating to the war in Afghanistan has been cracked. The password is revealed on the Wikileaks website. 'NATO in Afghanistan: Master Narrative' is the title of the secret document that instructs NATO representatives on which 'story' to give journalists — and which story to avoid giving. The document could be found in encrypted form on the Pentagon Central Command (CENTCOM) website. However, it seems that the entire site has been taken offline in response to the revelation of the password. Parts of the site can still be seen in Google's cache."
