Hacker obtained Secret Service memo from T-Mobile net. The incident was first reported by online security information site SecurityFocus.A California computer engineer is charged with breaking into T-Mobile's network and reading e-mails and personal files of hundereds of customers, including Secret Service memos. The hacker activity was traced to near Buffalo, N.Y. where he was staying. The SS agent who's files were compromised was at the time also investigating the T-Mobile break-in.

First and foremost, what is a fedaeral agent doing posting sensitive material on an on obviously unsecure network? Those involved should be brought up on charges.
