    An interesting article, but with an incorrect assertion towards the end. It concludes:
    This incident they're referring to, if it's what I think it is, is a case where those Democrats' files were mistakenly placed on a public server by people authorized to have access to those files. It was not a case of espionage.

    No amount of security software will help if someone with legitimate access to classified documentes deliberately places them on a public server.

    Author didn't do any research

    "So far, the benefits of 64-bit computing have been limited to scientific workstations and PC servers running Intel Corp.'s Xenon processors."

    This is inaccurate and misleading, in that a) Xenon isn't a name of an Intel chip but Xeon IS, and b) Xeon isn't even 64-bit: surely the author meant Itanium/IA-64, which as many of us know, is doomed to failure. The author failed to mention AMD's Opteron (which has been out for over a year) as well as Athlon 64, which has been out for a long time. Finally, Intel is using AMD64 as a basis for it's desktop 64-bit chips. Total lack of research on the part of the author.
