Among the nearly 20,000 emails published on WikiLeaks following
massive hack of the Democratic National Committee is one
that, quite ironically, mocks a BuzzFeed News report critical of
the DNC's and RNC's cybersecurity practices.
"The dumbest thing I've ever read," wrote Eric Walker, the DNC's
deputy communications director, in the subject line of a May
5 email to the distribution list of his communications team.
Walker's comment was in response to a BuzzFeed News report
published earlier that day in which cybersecurity experts
criticized the DNC and GOP for their practice of handing out
USB thumb drives to reporters.
