Security logs show that Hillary Clinton's private e-mail server was not hacked.

Courtesy of the New York Times:  

A former aide to Hillary Clinton has turned over to the F.B.I. computer security logs from Mrs. Clinton’s private server, records that showed no evidence of foreign hacking, according to people close to a federal investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s emails. 

The security logs bolster Mrs. Clinton’s assertion that her use of a personal email account to conduct State Department business while she was the secretary of state did not put American secrets into the hands of hackers or foreign governments. 

The former aide, Bryan Pagliano, began cooperating with federal agents last fall, according to interviews with a federal law enforcement official and others close to the case. Mr. Pagliano described how he set up the server in Mrs. Clinton’s home in Chappaqua, N.Y., and according to two of the people, he provided agents the security logs. 

There is evidence of spam e-mails sent to the server, some coming from Russia, but apparently no evidence that they were successful in breaching Clinton's security protocols.

Remember the entire argument put forward by the conservatives is that the private server was less secure than the State Department servers, and that it potentially put classified information at risk.

However what needs to be pointed out is that those Russian hackers DID breach the state department e-mail servers, and probably got their hands on all kinds of sensitive information, while Hillary's supposedly "at risk" private server remained secure.

      Not to mention if it's the habit of Secretaries of State to have email servers that foreign hackers can't even guess at, it makes sense.

      But apparently it only makes sense if you're a Republican Secretary of State.

    About Trump rallies, before he goes on, an announcer says that although Mr Trump believes in the first amendment, hecklers won't be tolerated. If someone or a group becomes a problem, do nothing except shout "Trump!" repeatedly until the problem is removed.

    Security is also very proactive in ending problems before they start, meaning if someone looks like trouble, an eye will keep tabs on them.

    People keep putting in their two cents about this video. I held mine in for a while. No, she should not have been shoved. But the media doesn't show you everything. I was there. I had media credentials and was on the riser and had a view of the entire event, including all 75 or so people who were kicked out of this event. I'd say about 5 of them were black. This lady wasn't being peaceful. She was jumping around and bumping into old people, screaming in people's faces, etc. It has nothing to do with the color of her skin. The media hasn't mentioned the two white guys, ONE WEARING A HOMEMADE KKK HOOD, that were immediately kicked out. Or the other 70 something people. Protestors went to this event with the intentions to cause an uproar and intimidate and harass the Trump supporters. Why wouldn't the Trump supporters defend what they believe in? Wouldn't you? No matter what side you're on, there is always two sides to every story. I'll post pictures soon of the massive amounts of white people who were escorted out for interrupting the rally, and then you guys can put your race card away for another day.

    I read somewhere that sophisticated hackers can get around the security logs, so before you get too excited, this may or may not be significant.

    For those of us who believe HRC intentionally set up her own server so no one could scrutinize her contacts or what she said to them, the national security argument is a sideline. I personally believe the FBI is following the money trail around the world of all the governments that "contributed" to the foundation when she had the power in her State position to influence an outcome for them.

    In one of her first legal/political jobs, she hid source documents from everyone so she could write up a fraudulent legal brief on them that would help get Nixon out of the way. Then she hid the Rose law firm records over her counsel to the loan company that was being investigated. The PATTERN here is what is most concerning.

    It is really fine for you to support whomever you want for president, just as you respect those of us who support someone else. But PLEASE don't try to brush under the rug any crimes that may have been committed by said candidate because that makes you seem less American to those of us who value liberty and justice for all.

    This is not a right wing conspiracy against HRC, or we would not have the non partisan FBI and career State attorneys throwing resources toward it. The law applies to every American, yes even to politicians.

      My employer (state) provided us all with email accounts and it was so freaking cumbersome and slow I immediately got my own private account and did business from there. As one example, their security logged us out after five minutes- so typing a long email or one where I was interrupted or had to look something up - all was lost when I hit send. For just a few dollars I could have modern email communications while my bureaucratic employer just added more and more junk to the server until it served no one. Was theirs more secure? I think anyone with the right skills can hack anything, state servers included.

      Thanks everyone for reading my 6pm post. Yes, I wrote it just for this site. And I was being polite to our host, because he omitted part of the information from the NY Times article, which it seemed no one else had bothered to read either.

      Here is the quote of the entire paragraph:

      Mr. Pagliano told the agents that nothing in his security logs suggested that any intrusion occurred. Security logs keep track of, among other things, who accessed the network and when. They are not definitive, and forensic experts can sometimes spot sophisticated hacking that is not apparent in the logs, but computer security experts view logs as key documents when detecting hackers.

Just like those Republicans I mentioned, she didn't believe in being accountable to the people who paid her salary.

    4. There is a bit of a difference between an email account (ie: Yahoo for Palin) and a secure server. Notice the word SECURE. Also, as mentioned by others, all emails sent by Clinton were received by someone else and therefore also retrievable. I believe her server was likely more secure than the government server/system which was likely very outdated and more likely to be targeted by hackers. Government computer systems are notoriously outdated compared to commercial systems.

    This is such a weird headline and spin. I work in IT and it is simply a fact that you cannot prove a negative claim. A good hacker can leave no trace of an intrusion. "Logs"!might well never show any such intrusion. Logs are also cycled and in many configurations not kept indefinitely. Therefore you cannot prove a server wasn't ever compromised. It's just not a real thing in IT security.
