What's In Saddam Hussein's Inbox?
Internet Security Freelancer Had Chance To Snoop
DURHAM, N.H. So, what's in Iraqi president Saddam Hussein's e-mail inbox?
You might be surprised to find out that his might not look much different than the one you have including spam.
Brian McWilliams is a freelancer who deals with Internet security, and he said he had a chance to snoop through an inbox that contains e-mail addressed to the Iraqi leader. After sifting through the official Iraqi Web site, he found the government-controlled site that lets people send e-mail to Saddam and lets officials check their accounts.
McWilliams said the most disturbing thing he found was the spam sent to Saddam from U.S. companies, offering business deals. That kind of offer would be illegal because of the U.S. sanctions against Iraq.
In addition, there were threats against the Iraqi leader as well as requests for autographed photos.
One e-mail was from a California CEO claiming he could help ignite large portions of the atmosphere. Another requested an autograph. Both were among those inside Saddam Hussein's e-mail box that a journalist managed to hack into.
