Sarah Palin's Email Hacked

Sometime last Tuesday, an unknown hacker gained access to gov.palin@yahoo.com, an e-mail account that Gov. Sarah Palin has used for personal and possibly also state business in Alaska.

The hacker posted the e-mail password to a section of 4Chan, a discussion site known as a haven for Web "trolls" -- deliberate online troublemakers.

For a brief time, Palin was an open book. Readers of 4Chan trudged through her inbox, saving screen shots of her correspondence with friends and supporters, a list of her frequent contacts and pictures of her family.
