For the last several weeks, all of DC has been wailing that Russia hacked the election, in part because John Podesta didn’t have two-factor authentication on his Gmail account.
So it should scare all of you shitless that, as of August 29, 2016, not all high risk users at NSA had 2FA.
That revelation comes 35 pages into the 38 page HPSCI report on Edward Snowden. It describes how an IG Report finished on August 29 found that NSA still had not closed the Privileged Access-Related holes in the NSA’s network.
That’s not the only gaping hole: apparently even server racks in data centers were not secure.
And note that date: August 29? Congress would have heard about these glaring problems just two weeks after the first Shadow Brokers leak, and days after Hal Martin got arrested with terabytes of NSA data in his backyard shed.
I think I can understand why James Clapper and Ash Carter want to fire Mike Rogers.
