Day six! It's also a pretty shitty password. Let's hope he's got 2-factor auth turned on! Also, Trump's still using his insecure personal Android device.
Anyone wanna take a guess at what "aqenbpuu" is an acronym for?
With any luck, @PressSec has two-factor authentication and President Trump’s use of his Android phone is limited to Twitter posts (though a staffer still occasionally posts for him from an iPhone). Unfortunately, it does not appear that the new Trump @POTUS account is thus secured—as recently as last night, the account was only tied to the Gmail account of Trump’s social media chief Dan Scavino (email@example.com) for password reset links. The same goes for Spicer’s @PressSec handle. The account for Vice President Michael Pence was separately tied to firstname.lastname@example.org, according to the hacker known as WauchulaGhost. (WauchulaGhost has previously claimed responsibility for taking over a number of ISIS accounts, and he told CNN about Pence's situation on January 24.)

That’s why music aficionados designed The Basslet, an accessory that reproduces that sensation from your wrist. Does it make your whole body shake with deep subs? Not really, because that would be terrifying, but […]
They probably just sleep a lot. But still, you can remotely keep an eye on them when you’re at work and missing them deeply with this HD monitor from Kodak.If you have a new puppy that destroys everything in sight, or you just want to be a little more security-conscious, this WiFi camera is a […]
Thinking of a business idea is the easy part. Doesn’t even have to be a “good” idea, you can still get people to throw money at a non-existent venture, but to do that you need to at least have something even resembling a viable business plan. Why doesn’t anyone do it then? Because building that semi-viable […]
