"The discs were password-protected but unencrypted"

What? Are you telling me that the data was in plain text? And how does the password come into play?

Maybe it's along the idea of the Irish virus? The first line of the data has a line that says "the password is xxx. If that is not the password you were thinking off, please do not continue."

I mean, there is no other way to interpret this, other than that the spokesperson has no clue and is committing the cardinal media management sin of making assumptions when talking to the press.
