Another Day, Another Leaked Email Story

Has anyone else noticed that there’s a news story about a leaked email every single day? Granted, this is what Virtru does, so we’re hyper-aware any time we see a story that exists only because someone said something unwise in an email that magically found its way to the media.

Today’s story is from the Advocate, and covers some unfortunate words from executives at BET who are currently facing an employment discrimination lawsuit that revolves around transgender media personality B. Scott. The story, which was broken by TMZ, is also covered on The Huffington Post.

The nonchalant way most people deal with email security makes for a steady stream of similar news stories. We’ll see you tomorrow for the next one.
