Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Email Scandal

Server connected openly to Internet

13 Oct, 2015

According to The Associated Press, Clinton’s server, which handled her personal and State Department correspondence, appears to allow users to connect openly over the Internet to control it remotely, according to detailed records compiled in 2012. Experts say the Microsoft remote desktop service wasn’t intended for such use without additional protective measures, and was the subject of U.S. government and industry warnings at the time over attacks from even low-skilled intruders. Clinton also operated two more devices on her home network in Chappaqua, New York, that also were directly accessible from the Internet.
