"How I Found Norm Coleman's Website Database In 2 Minutes"

Adria Richards on The Rachel Maddow Show last night. Below is her own video uploaded to YouTube earlier this week.

I was the one who found the database which was sitting right out there in a website directory. No hacking was required and the only tool I used was my Firefox web browser.

Although an IT Professional by trade, Adria Richards explains how even a 5th grader could have gained access to ex-Sen Norm Coleman's website, a story initially grossly misreported in the mainstream media ("Hacker steals Coleman donor data"). Or the sheer mindlessness of conspiracy theorists such as John Hinderaker: Liberal Hackers at it again. There is now talk that the Coleman campaign may face charges for not securing their donors credit card information properly, and rightly so.
