Re: SUSSED...

No secret service involvement here.

From what I can guess (the information comes mostly from one persons e-mails/FB/blog) someone (Cameron Slater?) has had their password guessed/captured/brute forced. So either the password is easy and re-used or the password details have been been found.

Based on the e-mails, I'm guessing that password security was down the list of things to do after taking over the world, destroying the left and trying to be obnoxious.

Happy to be corrected on that if there are more details.
