Democrat leadership as a whole believe they are above the fray, entitled and don't have to live by the same rules as everyone else. This attitude creates ignorance to rules, regulations and best practices to many things including information security.
The leadership in the White House, with this attitude allowed intrusion after intrusion into their own systems. Post mortem analysis showed misconfiguration and failure to follow NIST and DISA guidelines which had been in place since 2007; such as certification and accreditation practices.
Once again their attitude and ignorance bites them. Maybe they did get into financial records... maybe they didn't. Those in the Democrat Party with any power have been caught in so many lies or spin statements, there is no way you can believe them.
I like how they say... they went after 'communication'. Which means, all email, text, messaging, etc. was breached. Heck, with this information they wouldn't have to go after database files. I'm sure much of this information was sent to the DMC via email. Not to mention all the information gathered from messaging and text.
Perhaps they don't have much on Donald Trump, but what about emails and other damaging communications which come to light which could indicate the DNC is behind demonstrations which became violent, resulting in injury to people and damage to property.
Democrat philosophy: You must be robots, you can't have your own thought on issues, you must believe ours. If you don't, then we do everything to destroy you. Also, we say we're the compassionate party, but really we aren't. <-- Lovely, considering the USA was built on the notion, that people should be able to think freely, encourage debate, and critical thinking.
John Gunn is an idiot who makes his company look bad. You can't make a statement like this unless you've been hired by all political establishments in a capacity which allows you to have enough knowledge to make this statement. Don't just 'guess'.
Realistically, any political establishment with a brains wouldn't host their own servers (like the DNC did), they would use a 3rd party hosting service which typically brings the costs down and increases security. Apparently, the DNC wanted to host their own systems... why do you think this is?
Go ahead, give me a thumbs down because you just read the title instead of the whole comment.
