Wired reports on a high schooler who contacted the New York Post in mid-October to tell them how he hacked into the CIA director’s personal AOL email and what he found there:

..sensitive government documents stored as attachments in Brennan’s personal account because the spy chief had forwarded them from his work email … and the sensitive 47-page SF-86 application that Brennan had filled out to obtain his top-secret government security clearance.

The privacy of one of the country’s highest ranking security officials along with sensitive US government data, was compromised by a teenager. SMH.
