BREATHTAKING STUPIDITY : Assange Exposes Podesta’s Password was “PASSWORD”

Holy Cow. John Podesta broke the golden rule of internet security in the worst way possible. In an interview with Sean Hannity last night, Julian Assange exposes that Podesta’s email password was “PASSWORD.”

From FoxNews:

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange told Fox News’ Sean Hannity in an exclusive interview that a teenager could have hacked into Hillary Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta’s computer and retrieved damaging email messages that the website published during last year’s election campaign.

“We published several … emails which show Podesta responding to a phishing email,” Assange said during Part I of the interview, which aired on “Hannity” Tuesay night. “Podesta gave out that his password was the word ‘password’. His own staff said this email that you’ve received, this is totally legitimate. So, this is something … a 14-year-old kid could have hacked Podesta that way.”

Assange also claimed that Clinton herself made “almost no attempt” to keep her private emails safe from potentially hostile states during her tenure as secretary of state.

“Password” has consistently been named the 2nd worst password possible and is simply asking for trouble!
