Warning: Nerd Alert

According to their current domain MX record, they are using Office 365 for email.

Office 365 sucks for blocking spam and illegitimate email so I suspect someone got tricked into submitting their login/password at a bad website.

With the Liberal leanings of all of the Tech giants (including Microsoft), I am amazed that an organization like the GOP would use their products and NOT expect there is a backdoor. Might as well use Gmail or Outlook and let them have full access.

I have wondered to myself...

Are we about ready for a few new upstarts in the tech field... which will provide better security????

Seems all we hear about anymore... is yet another security breech... like being at risk to loose the fruits of your efforts for many years... is just life.

IMO there is a need... and we may well be at a point an entrepreneur may well serve that need
The need being: more secure internet.

I believe it would be hard for an upstart to provide what people require, in a way that an upstart can compete with these basically monopoly tech companies.

Yes, it would be nice to have an alternative, I don't know that it is probable. There would need to be some big investors to have the capital to pull it off.

I use Kaspersky literally because I trust the Russians more than the United States. They have exposed and blocked back doors in systems that are rumored to be US government requests.
