Findings this week suggest that if Hillary Clinton ever used a private network to print documents from her home-based server, that printer could have been breached by hackers.

The information came from Internet address maps stored by Farsight Security, a San Mateo, Calif.-based tech company. The map indicated that one of the subdomains attached to the former secretary of state’s “clintonemail.com” address had been given the less-than-subtle name, “printer.clintonemail.com.”

It isn’t clear whether Clinton ever used the address to actually attach an Internet-connected printer. If she did, it could have served as another attack vector for hackers to access the information that was transmitted.

“Whoever set up their home network like that was a security idiot, and it’s a dumb thing to do,” Ronald Guilmette, a private security specialist, told Brian Krebs, who noted the vulnerability on his tech blog. “Not just because any idiot on the Internet can just waste all your toner. Some of these printers have simple vulnerabilities that leave them easy to be hacked into.

Because Hillary only surrounds herself with the best people.
