I love their image of "hacking."

They've done an ipconfig and a dir search for mfc42ui.dll on a German machine, and then launched the registry editor from a command line. Hacking!

No, but my chewing gum does lose its flavor on the bedpost.

Does the computer have a built in webcam and does she personally know an IT professional?

Green Scorpio: All the high tech farkers here with simpleton reasons for her dilemma apparently DNRTFA.
CBS hired their own forensics team to look at it, and they ruled out the obvious like power settings, virus and malware.

I expect that they called Geek Squad or something.

FunkOut: Gonz: teknophile4385: Article is heavily implying that it must be the NSA...

The article's heavily implying that Sharyl Attkinson doesn't know her ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to computers.

Here's rule #1: I don't care how good the hacker is, if there's no power to the computer, they're not getting any of your data.

Unless they are...a psychic hacker. Or a wizard. Or a ghost.

Old Ben Ghazi... that's a name he's not heard in a long time.  A long time.  He hasn't gone by the name of Old Ben Ghazi since oh, before you were born.

Attkisson could not speak about whether the hacking was related to her questions about Benghazi because of "legal counsel," but she did say her work at that time was primarily on the occurrence.

I'm guessing it had more to do with you wanting to find out what friends had recently viewed your Facebook profile, or perhaps trying to win a free iPad.

"Whoever was in my work computer, the only thing I was working on were work-related things with CBS were big stories I guess during the time period in questions were I guess Benghazi and 'Fast and Furious.' "
