We have flash drives.
Three days after the Los Angeles Times broke the story of the US military secrets for sale at an Afghan bazaar
, a reporter for the paper bought ($40) another computer drive sold openly outside the U.S. air base in Bagram
, Afghanistan. The 1-gigabyte flash drive holds "what appears to be a trove of potentially sensitive American intelligence data, including the names, photographs and telephone numbers of Afghan spies informing on the Taliban and Al Qaeda, personal snapshots, Special Forces training manuals, records of direct action training missions in South America, along with numerous computer slide presentations and documents marked secret." Most documents are neither locked nor encrypted. But the good news is, some of them can't be opened without a password, and the Army is investigating
anyway. (LAT BugMeNot)
