Taliban spokesman’s email blunder

emailing

An office worker sending out a mass email… just learned the dangers of hitting CC! It can happen to anyone…but get this – that worker doesn’t work for just any company. He is a spokesman for the Taliban!

He was trying to email a press release but he made a critical mistake before hitting “send.” Instead of sending a blind carbon copy to hundreds of people on his mailing list he CC’ed everyone. So instead of hiding the recipients’ email addresses he exposed them all to everyone!

The list of more than 400 people included mostly journalists. But that is not all. There was also an Afghan lawmaker, a dangerous afghan warlord and other activists on the list. At least one of the journalists is unhappy about his contact information being made public. He says it is not very reassuring for his safety.

And in case you are wondering, the Taliban routinely sends out press releases.

So what do you think about all of this? Sound off below!
