Pentagon Secret Backbone Hardly Secret

Kevin Mitnick: 'The only thing McAfee is good at is making videos' - 16 Oct 2013 - Computing News: "He showed the audience a detailed network topology map, which included all the switches and routers on the network, and all of the internal and external IP addresses. The network in question was the Pentagon Secret Backbone. Mitnick explained that someone at the Pentagon had installed a peer-to-peer client at some point, and not realised that various important documents, such as this map, had been leaked as a direct result."

(ed. note): And yet people in government still think the Chinese and Russians wanted Snowden's documents. Truth is, they probably had already obtained all of those documents themselves before Snowden ever thought about it.
