The staff then realized that the draft review showed that CIA leadership misled the panel in submitting an official response that disputed some report conclusions, the knowledgeable person said.
The staff printed out the draft, walked the document out of the CIA facility and took it to Capitol Hill, an act that the CIA regarded as the unauthorized removal of classified material and a violation of a user agreement between the sides, according to knowledgeable people.


Like anybody actually reads those things.

The CIA confronted the committee in January with details of the unauthorized removal. The staff then determined that the CIA had recorded their use of the computers in the high-security research room that also allegedly violated the user agreement, McClatchy learned

Oh this should be good.

Sounds like an episode of "Get Smart".

I think they purposefully put out these stories to make people think "Oh these guys are idiots!" and let their guards down for the CIA to really do its job.

So the CIA lied to everyone, (and violated the EULA) and Senate staff found out (and violated the EULA).  Yeah, well, those are equivalent violations right there, yes sir.  No harm, no foul, let's all move on, folks.

Well, to be fair, the Senate helps make the laws; they don't enforce them.  That's the job of the Executive branch of government.

It's the job of both the Congress and the Administration to provide oversight.  And if the CIA is lying to everybody, it's kinda hard to provide oversight.

Just going by the headline, a printer will not get information out of the room.

If the security of your nation is dependent on EULA's, you may want to re-evaluate.  Unless those EULA's make you scroll all the way to the bottom, before hitting Okely-Dokely.  Then you should be fine.

So...the network guys accidentally , , the printer vlan?

Knew a guy who worked in an audit firm.
The computers that had the client information didn't have any USB ports, disk drives and the network was internal.
They had dedicated computers that were connected to the internet.

Of course this was pre camera phones.

A scorpion stood at the edge of a river. A frog came along and prepared to cross. "Hey," said the scorpion, "I need to get across the river. Since you're going that way anyway, how about giving me a ride on your back?"

"No way," said the frog. "You'll sting me halfway across, and then I'll die."

"Don't be stupid," said the scorpion. "If I sting you and you die, then I'll die too, because I'll drown."

"Well, okay," said the frog. "Hop on, but you have to promise you won't sting me."

"Word of honor," said the scorpion, and he climbed on the frog's back.

Halfway across, the scorpion stung the frog, and the frog's muscles seized up and he started to die. "What the hell!" screamed the frog. "Are yo insane! Now we're both going to die! And you gave me your word!"

"I can't help it," said the scorpion. "I'm a scorpion. That's what I do. But you're at fault too. You knew what I was when you let me climb up on your back."

Some of the guards at high security sites, though usually well trained, are not the brightest beans in the bush.
