No Missouri

Viewing website HTML code is not illegal or “hacking,” prof. tells Missouri gov.

The security flaw uncovered is one thing, how they handled it is something else.

Shocking.

I think this has been posted here before:

view-source:https://www.usds.gov/
view-source:https://www.whitehouse.gov/ (specifically line 9, the first comment)

I think I posted here way back that I discovered that if I knew the customer name, I could look up all their past travel on... Jet Blue I think. Their database was fully searchable with a site: search. But releasing SSNs is really next-level. I hope Khan's countersuit is successful and that the state has to pay some sort of civil penalty for the data breach.

>>The PAC continues to raise and spend large sums of money

Enough said. As Utah Philips said, "The profit motive follows the path of least resistance and following the path of least resistance is what makes a river crooked."

You know how Nigerian 419 scammers purposely put obvious flaws in their emails to filter out the less gullible? It seems the Missouri GOP is employing a similar strategy here with the Parson's campaign.  If his supporters fail this level of understanding they are with him all the way and anything he says will be gospel as long as it is wrapped in a flag.

Thank you. Unlike the spammers, I don’t think Parsons is that smart to do it on purpose, but I don’t think that detracts from your basic observation. That’s a useful perspective
