Obama's capaign computers hit by Rootkit/keylogger:

This summer the FBI and Secret Service notified Obama's IT team
it had been hacked. To be fair, they had more offices than any
other campaign ever, and security in that situation is a nightmare.
( SORRY GOOGLE's FORMATTING SCREWING UP )
So his position papers as of mid summer are known to a foreign entity.
There is a high probalibity the rootkit remains on the campaings PC's.
Dispite their best efforts.
And also a high probility some of their personal notebooks were and are also comprimised,
and his staff will be moving inot the Whitehouse with infected notebooks and still infected PC's.
They the intruders made it to ROOT, it is almost impossible to guarantee those PC's are clean.
And tracing the vector for infection is going to be very difficult, it could have been form an infected email
or manually by a voulnteer, or even a direct assult on thier firewalls.
Obamas policy and position papers will change as he is exposed to "Top Secret" data from the US Government
Intelligence agencys. So the loss is not great, YET.
NO COMPUTER HOOKED INTO HIS campaign SHOULD BE ALLOWED IN THE WHITEHOUSE, NOR SHOULD ANY OF HIS STAFF KEEP AND USE THOSE COMPUTERS.
THOSE COMPUTER COULD HAVE ACTIVE ROOTKITS STILL INVISIBLE TO IT TECHS.
The Whitehouse informed Obama's campaign chief David Plouffe, that it was a "foreign entity".
( CHINA )
Paradigm Intel indicates the FBI, SS and the Whitehouse know it was the Chinese.
I can't wait for the Air Force Cybers to get real cyber sidearms.
