CLINTON HACK--Investigation--ADMIN ACCOUNT LOGIN "LOCKED"--

TO "M"
FROM "QUARREL"
SUBJ--THE OBVIOUS FRONT DOOR--

(NASSAU)--The most obvious approach, according to the original hacker, "Guccifer", the unemployed Romanian cab driver, was to keep entering user names and passwords until he accessed the account.

A simple example of this was tested at votebuilder.com, the DNC page with the user name, the most obvious being "admin".

A generic password was entered and the results are in the image below--

 
"Your account has been locked"




One might speculate from the above that the hacker took not the sophisticated, in-the-movies "back-door" approach, but simply followed Guccifer (1.0) with a tried and true trial by error approach, and got lucky.
