• Clinton Lied about Location of Email Server

    In her only public comment on her personal email server, Clinton said:

    It was on property guarded by the Secret Service and there were no security breaches. So I think that the use of that server… certainly proved to be effective and secure.

    According to tech site Ars Technica, she lied.

    Since at least 2010 (the server went online in early 2009) the email server with the Secretary of State’s official government emails was located in a commercial facility in Huntsville, Alabama. There would not be any Secret Service there.

    Clinton’s staff has allowed the meme to circulate that the email server was a stand-alone device located at her Chappaqua, New York, home. That may have been true initially. Historic DNS records from October 2010 showed Clinton’s e-mail server was in fact at a static IP address provided by Optimum, a Cablevision subsidiary, that corresponded to the Clintons’ Chappaqua address.

    After that, however, the home server was dropped in 2010, and the mail exchange (MX) record for clintonemail.com was moved to a hosted Microsoft Exchange server running out of a data center in Huntsville, Alabama. Such commercial data servers can be expensive stand alone devices, but are more commonly shared computers. Clinton’s email could conceivably been on a server alongside of www.ILikeBigButtsXXX.com. It would be a good question to ask the candidate.

    The other feature of such rental data center hosting is the extensive backups they offer. Even a cheapo plan like the one used on this blog offers daily backups kept for a year. That means the likelihood of a backup of Clinton’s email exists in Huntsville, Alabama.

    If I was a Congressional committee with subpoena power, I’d be on the phone right now to Huntsville.

    BONUS: The server Clinton uses even to this day runs Microsoft Exchange 2010 server software, on an instance of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with Internet Information Server 7.5, both of which have had numerous security vulnerabilities uncovered since this particular server was configured. Here’s a short list. One certainly hopes the host has kept tidy with his patches.

    We have noted previously that Clinton’s earliest server ran for three months of her overseas travel without encryption, and that her use of a commercial spam filter service left her emails viewable to that company.

    Clinton can make no credible claim that her email server was secure.

      May we hope for another serial Billary Bombo ERUPTION (perhaps of the Male-E variety)!
