This morning's Age carries the story
of the Taliban press release which apparently inadvertently revealed the organisation's entire mailing list when a spokesman managed to hit "cc" instead of "bcc" in what US-based ABC news described as a "Dilbert-esque faux pax".
It may be Dilbert-esque, but before we laugh too hard at those tech-clumsy Taliban, fumbling their way into the cyber age, it's worth remembering that this particular faux pax is also Assange-esque. Wikileaks much-vaunted encryption to secure the anonymity of its sources reportedly unraveled due to a chain of events following "an error thousands of email users make daily: choosing "cc" rather than "bcc"."
Oh, Dilbert. From Afghan religious extremists to silver-haired Melbourne cyber-hipsters - you know us so well.
