Hunter Biden was very bad at setting password on his infamous laptop: report

It didn’t take much for investigators to crack Hunter Biden’s infamous abandoned laptop, according to a report, because the password was “Hunter02.”

The MacBook Pro’s hard drive — subject of a series of New York Post stories and under investigation by the FBI — had the lax and lazy password despite containing a trove of e-mails and other data relating to his father, Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden, the Daily Mail on Sunday reported.

The former vice president’s son had ample reason to be more careful securing the device, the existence of which was first reported in The Post, the outlet noted.

Among its contents were his father’s private emails and phone numbers — including the cell numbers for almost every member of former President Barack Obama’s cabinet,

the Mail reported.

Other contacts in the hard drive were for Gwyneth Paltrow, Coldplay singer Chris Martin, former presidential candidate John Kerry and ex-FBI boss Louis Freeh, the report said.

Hunter’s own data fills the drive, the report said — including personal email exchanges with his father and details of a $21,000 he spent on a “live cam” porn site, the Mail said.

The material was not protected by encryption or two-factor authentication — just the flimsy password, allowing a security risk that one former laptop security adviser to the British government told the Mail was “staggering.”
