Reading various articles where the FBI is probing to see if Hillary Clinton’s email was secure. It is definitely not secure. What blows my mind is that it’s not immediately obvious it is not.
Clinton uses MxLogic as a spam filtering service. Anyone can see this buy doing a simple lookup on her MX record.
dig clintonemail.com mx

All her email went through this spam filtering service where any employee who had access to the filtering system could read all her emails. I’m in the same business (yes – I’m jealous) and I could read any email that passes through my system if I wanted to. (But I’m still trying to read all my own emails first.)
I don’t know if there was anything classified or not. But I can say that if these emails we at all sensitive then they were exposed to MxLogic employees.
Was the material classified? I have no idea. Was the email secure? The answer isn’t just no, it’s Hell No!
