WASHINGTON (AP) — State Department staffers wrestled for weeks in December 2010 over a serious technical problem with then-Secretary Hillary Clinton's home email server, causing them to temporarily disable security features that left the server more vulnerable to hackers, according to emails released Wednesday.

Just weeks later, according to previously disclosed emails, hackers attacked the server, forcing Clinton's staff to shut it down. The next day, one of Clinton's closest aides, Huma Abedin, wrote to other high ranking staff: "Don't email hrc (Clinton) anything sensitive. I can explain more in person."

The emails were released under court order Wednesday to the conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch, which has sued the State Department over access to public records related to the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee's service as the nation's top diplomat between 2009 and 2013.

The emails, reviewed by The Associated Press, show that State Department technical staff disabled software intended to block phishing emails that could deliver dangerous viruses. They were trying urgently to resolve an apparent conflict between the server's built-in email delivery features with a version of "ScanMail for Exchange" security software from Trend Micro Inc. that had been installed on her server. Clinton has not previously described any security protections on her server.

And relying on Trendmicro - it gets worse and worse.

This should be enough to imply the email server was used for sensitive information - illegal!

Indict Huma and Hillary

And this is who GOP leaders are going out of their way to get elected by using their news airtime to attack Trump instead of Clinton.

My workplace used it. It was great at letting spam and virus laden emails through and vanishing emails you actually wanted.

Think Smart Car. It might have a place somewhere, but it ain't on the information superhighway. It's not "Enterprise" level software, regardless of their aspirations.

I use it on networks of all sizes and don't have issues with it.

SMEX has never given me any issues on Exchange except when removing the Messaging Security Agent from Exchange. It leaves two transport agents in place that need to be removed via Powershell and restart MSEXCHANGETRANSPORT. No biggie. Never had any issues with false positives and such.

Maybe her problem was the Chinese sending her malware laden emails titled "Bill's New Cigar Flavor" and she was hell bent on opening them.

I'm proud I contribute to Judicial Watch. Without them, none of this would have surfaced.

Try convincing me that her server wasn't just a dead drop to deliver secrets purchased by our enemies. Go ahead.

That's exactly what it was. Pay for a speech -> get files and/or favor.

I am too technical to understand what the article is saying. It implies that they took some troubleshooting workaround and left it in place for production. Not saying that never happens in the real world, but it can get you fired. If something goes south, odds on getting fired increase to 100%. More than a year after you left, you got off.
