Betcha it was the pee tape.

Boy this ranks up there with the leak of the NSA hacking tools which turned out to be the same thing. Some idiot took his work home with him, plugged into his home pc and lo and behold the AV program did what it is supposed to do and upload the suspicious code for examination.

The NSA is going to have to hire maybe not smarter people but ones with the common sense to NOT FUCKING TAKE SECRET WORK HOME.

It was her emails!

These are the Tailored Access people. They know the drill. What the heck.

Also, looks like the Russians may know all the NSA employees and where they live and their IPs.


#8

Surely the NSA is at fault here for allowing the possibility of sensitive material to be taken away from a, presumably, secure site.

They should add a couple of years for disabling Kaspersky & running the keygen. If he hadn’t done that, he might be like other NSA employees who have probably done the thing he’s charged with.
