CIA Director’s Personal Email Allegedly Hacked - WSJ

You've got jail...

"The New York Post reported Sunday that a “teen stoner” claimed to have hacked into Mr. Brennan’s AOL account and accessed sensitive files, including his application for top-secret security clearance. The newspaper also reported that Social Security numbers and other personal information for numerous top intelligence officials were held in the account.

Aki Peritz, a former CIA analyst, said the hackers would likely face severe penalties if they are caught, regardless of age or intentions. “Posting the personal information of a senior government official and then bragging about it—you are going to have the full weight of the law come down on you,” Mr. Peritz said. “If these are actually teenagers, they have really messed up their life for a long time.”"
