According to media reports, Hillary Clinton’s private email server storing about 55,000 pages of emails from Clinton’s time as secretary of state was target for cyber-attacks from China, South Korea and Germany after Hillary Clinton left office two and a half years ago.
Despite the fact that the hacking attempts were blocked by a “threat monitoring” software that was connected to Clinton’s network in October 2013, for more than 3 months (through to October 2013), the server has been unprotected and potentially vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
Hillary Clinton didn’t specify which, if any, firewall or threat protection was used on her email server before June 2013, including her time as secretary of state. At the time, the email server was kept in her home in the New York City suburbs.
According to the company that provided the threat-monitoring product, it first found malicious software based in China running an attack against the server. Overall, in 2013 and 2014, the company detected 3 such attempts linked to China, 1 based in Germany and 1 originating in South Korea. However, it is unknown whether the attempted intrusions into the email server were espionage threats or just not targeted nuisance attacks.
Still, the question is still up about Clinton’s decision to undertake sensitive government business over private email, and even the Federal Bureau of Investigation is trying to find out whether national security was compromised by Clinton’s email arrangement. After Hillary Clinton had left office, the email server in question was moved from her home to a data center in northern New Jersey and protected by CloudJacket SMB software, designed to block network access by “even the most determined hackers”.

|Just because an attack comes from an IP addresses allocated to certain countries doesn't mean the attack came from those countries. Please feed us more propaganda so we can think how you want us to think. But....Hilary thinks she is above the law just like many other politicians. Enough already.||
