Hacker Penetrates Pentagon E-mail System
In yet another case of "the kids are smarter than the adults," a hacker has broken into one of the Pentagon's e-mail servers, prompting officials to take up to 1,500 accounts offline.
While the email system did not contain classified information relating to military operations, Defense Secretary Robert Gates (pictured) said that a "variety of precautionary measures" were being taken.
But here's the strangest part: Asked if his own e-mail account was affected, Mr. Gates said: "I don't do e-mail. I'm a low-tech person."
Our Secretary of Defense is too low-tech to use email? Our Nanas uses email, and they're, like, a million years old.
