    As much as I like a good ol' conspiracy theory, I just can't get behind this.
    A yahoo account would be extremely easy for some channers to get into. Hell, some of them could probably get into a protected government account. As bad as some of them are, they're not stupid....despite most /b/ posts.

    ^I second that. Seems the chans were complaining that the password was changed before they got everything in the account.

    Here is the inside scoop on the fool who did it, his reasons (which alone will get him more jail time), and how it all played out.

    I missed the original incident, but monitored the discussion and repostings afterward to see what I could learn about what had happened and who was responsible.
    There are several misconceptions and errors in most accounts of this story, including your post. Most significantly, the perpetrator(s) were not members of an infamous group of hackers. I don’t blame you for misunderstanding this, because in all the media coverage regarding the war with Scientology the media has completely failed to explain what Anonymous is.
    Anonymous is not exactly a group. It is people using the umbrella of a web discussion board for cover to be as offensive, funny, strange, or whatever as they want.
    Here’s the short version: there is a site called 4chan.org. It is an image posting site based on a popular Japanese site. The site contains multiple boards, each of which is dedicated to a particular subject. The most notorious of these boards is called /b/. /b/ is the board dedicated to random images. /b/tards, as its denizens are called, are interested only in their own amusement. Their sense of humor runs the gamut from sick to cruel to merely strange. Lolcats, as made famous by Lolcats ‘n’ Funny Pictures of Cats - I Can Has Cheezburger?, originated on /b/. A lot of memes start there. There is a lot of racist humor — pictures of excited and happy black people in proximity to fried chicken abound. There is a lot of pornography. Sometimes it’s child pornography, although posting that is moderator grounds for banning — no, it’s not a pedophile ring; /b/tards post it because they think doing so is funny.
    4chan does not log participants. Most people don’t use or have usernames, and post instead as “Anonymous.” And every so often, a number of /b/’s anonymous denizens decide to make somebody’s life hell. Sometimes it’s a random person who offends /b/’s sense of propriety. Sometimes it’s a forum dedicated to a serious topic. Sometimes it’s Scientology. And Tuesday, it was Sarah Palin. Or it would have been.
    Sarah Palin’s email account was hacked by one person. Not a group.
    This person read her emails, then posted the username and password on /b/. This happened at about 4 in the morning on Tuesday. The idea was that the sea of Anonymous /b/tards would download the emails, upload porn, and cause all manner of mischief. Anonymous is not a group of hackers. Anonymous is more like gremlins. They are hyperactive adolescents in search of amusement and joy, which they often get by upsetting people and making messes. That’s what was happening here. Anonymous did not hack the account. A hacker tried to throw Sarah Palin to Anonymous. Not all of Anonymous was having it. One person threw a crowbar in the works. Other /b/tards were displeased to miss a chance at the lulz. The moderators stepped in. The thread was deleted.
    Later, other individuals created threads reposting screencaps of emails and the inbox, and put together a collection of these files. All mentions of these were purged by the moderators. So then some bright /b/tards decided to email what little stuff they had to the media.
    That’s pretty much it.
    This afternoon, in a thread that was later deleted, an individual claiming to be the original poster gave his account of what happened. I’ve attached screencaps. Here’s the text. The original poster used the name “rubico.” The linked email address for the poster was rubico10@yahoo.com.
    This is what rubico said:
    rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:57:22 No.85782652
    Hello, /b/ as many of you might already know, last night sarah palin’s yahoo was “hacked” and caps were posted on /b/, i am the lurker who did it, and i would like to tell the story.
    In the past couple days news had come to light about palin using a yahoo mail account, it was in news stories and such, a thread was started full of newfags trying to do something that would not get this off the ground, for the next 2 hours the acct was locked from password recovery presumably from all this bullshit spamming.
    after the password recovery was reenabled, it took seriously 45 mins on wikipedia and google to find the info, Birthday? 15 seconds on wikipedia, zip code? well she had always been from wasilla, and it only has 2 zip codes (thanks online postal service!)
    the second was somewhat harder, the question was “where did you meet your spouse?” did some research, and apparently she had eloped with mister palin after college, if youll look on some of the screenshits that I took and other fellow anon have so graciously put on photobucket you will see the google search for “palin eloped” or some such in one of the tabs.
    I found out later though more research that they met at high school, so I did variations of that, high, high school, eventually hit on “Wasilla high” I promptly changed the password to popcorn and took a cold shower…
    >> rubico 09/17/08(Wed)12:58:04 No.85782727
    this is all verifiable if some anal /b/tard wants to think Im a troll, and there isn’t any hard proof to the contrary, but anyone who had followed the thread from the beginning to the 404 will know I probably am not, the picture I posted this topic with is the same one as the original thread.
    I read though the emails… ALL OF THEM… before I posted, and what I concluded was anticlimactic, there was nothing there, nothing incriminating, nothing that would derail her campaign as I had hoped, all I saw was personal stuff, some clerical stuff from when she was governor…. And pictures of her family
    I then started a topic on /b/, peeps asked for pics or gtfo and I obliged, then it started to get big
    Earlier it was just some prank to me, I really wanted to get something incriminating which I was sure there would be, just like all of you anon out there that you think there was some missed opportunity of glory, well there WAS NOTHING, I read everything, every little blackberry confirmation… all the pictures, and there was nothing, and it finally set in, THIS internet was serious business, yes I was behind a proxy, only one, if this shit ever got to the FBI I was fucked, I panicked, i still wanted the stuff out there but I didn’t know how to rapidshit all that stuff, so I posted the pass on /b/, and then promptly deleted everything, and unplugged my internet and just sat there in a comatose state
    Then the white knight fucker came along, and did it in for everyone, I trusted /b/ with that email password, I had gotten done what I could do well, then passed the torch , all to be let down by the douchebaggery, good job /b/, this is why we cant have nice things
    The “white knight fucker” was the /b/tard who thought that going through Sarah Palin’s email wasn’t cool. He logged in, changed the password, and sent an email to a friend of Palin’s warning her and letting her know the new password. Unfortunately, he then posted a screenshot of this email to let the other /b/tards know their fun was over. He failed to blank the password, and they all tried to log in and change the password — which tripped the automated Yahoo! freeze. Since then, the account has been deleted. “Rapidshit” refers to rapidshare.com — i.e., rubico wanted to download the emails, put them into one file, and put that file up on rapidshare for /b/tards and the world at large to download. But he panicked, or didn’t know how to download the emails, and so pawned that task off on Anonymous, which he didn’t realize wasn’t monolithic and in his favor.
    As Paul Harvey would say, “And now you know…. the rest of the story.”

    Thank you! You beat me to it. This hacker should be prosecuted under Federal law. This is horrendous no matter who does it or who the recipient is. I'm sick and fucking tired of people thinking this horrific shit is okay just because it happens to someone you don't like. It's like sitting at the lunch table with a bunch of middle school girls and about half as stimulating. If this had been done to Obama or his wife or one of his kids you all would be outraged and you damn well know it. I can see how awful this is and I'm not even a Palin fan. They got the personal info of her minor kids for Godssake. Grow up.

    Frankly, I would be surprised if Obama was stupid enough to have a yahoo account.

    I just want to know why she is allowed to use YAHOO!!!??! for business related emails?

    WTF?


    I suspect she was trying to hide from her co workers and got burned on a larger scale instead.

    It's probably a good thing, for John McCain, that he's basically computer illiterate, so he doesn't have an email account to hack into... too bad for us, I'd like to know what kind of internet tirades he'd get into. Would he do 7331 $p34|< when get got pissed?

    It is awful. The crimes are crimes for a reason. And the laws are there because we know people do these things anyway. Everyone on this board realized how easy some kid with nothing better to do could and would get the account.

    That's why Palin should have obeyed procedure and conducted state business with her state secure account.

    Whether she used a personal yahoo account to hide something, or just out of plain stupidity, it was an astoundingly bad decision. Awful judgment.

    it wasn't even hacked

    they just guessed the password reset code which was her high school

    Actually, an Associated Press article I read said that no law had been violated. Guessing someone's security questions correctly isn't a crime.

    I have a police in place for my company that employees are not allowed to use anything other than their corporate email account for conducting business for security purposes. I even have it in the handbook that failure to follow this procedure could lead to immediate termination. Wonder if the State of Alaska has a policy on this? It would be fun if they did and she could be held accountable for breaking the security policy.

    Ok - so Sarah can't even keep her own email account safe but we are supposed to believe she can keep our country safe?
