"The teenager persuaded call handlers at an internet giant that he was John Brennan, the then director of the CIA, to gain access to his computers and an FBI helpdesk that he was Mark Giuliano, then the agency’s Deputy Director, to re-gain access to an intelligence database."

So he basically call and asked for his password!

Yea, I don't think the power of Social Engineering is ever gonna lower, since even though technological advancements will increase, human stupidity stays the same.

So I hope they went ahead and educated the cal handlers and help desk staff by now...

Great read, I heard about this at the time but didn't know all the details.
