By now everyone knows that John McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin had her yahoo email account hacked. I guess a presidential candidate using yahoo for govt. related email was about as shocking as Sarah Palins nomination as possible future president ((unless of course you have ever heard of other govt. officials using yahoo/gmail/hotmail for serious business)(inside joke for south africans!)).
People have been talking about secure password resets for a long time  and this was pretty shocking all around..
But even more shocking for me (as a totally removed observer), was the Errata Security post (authors of hamster, which we commented on [here]) ending their post with an endorsement of the McCain/Palin ticket.. i thought all (american) hax0rs leaned towards “the change“
