As with any journalism I'm sure there's more to the story than is presented here.

@craigmaloney The article was clear that this has been going on for years but I wonder if the activity has picked up lately and that's why it is getting more attention. I envision politically motivated people of all sorts trying to be the first to get to that information for a variety of reasons/purposes and something throwing up a red flag and drawing more scrutiny. Whatever the motivation, this seems troublesome.

@SleepytimeLisa Yeah, I get a little more wary in this political climate for sure.

@craigmaloney Hanlon's Razor applies with the other bureaus at work.  Accidental mass lockouts are common enough on the department networks.
