LIGATT Security International Suspects That Email Addresses From White House Could Have Been Faked by Third-Party Source

LIGATT Security International Demonstrates How Easy It Is to Send Fake Emails From Whitehouse.gov

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - August 18, 2009) - On August 13th, 2009, an unsolicited mass email was sent from the White House to numerous people regarding President Obama's health care reform. LIGATT Security International (PINKSHEETS: LGTT) CEO Gregory Evans questions the possibility of the email being sent from a third party, such as SPOOFEM.COM and IPSNITCH.

White House Adviser, David Axelrod, allegedly sent out a long "viral" email about health care to the White House's email list. Several people who received the White House e-mail are not members of any organization and have not been advocating for any cause, so they are confused over how the White House got their information. The theory is that third-party groups are including the names and e-mails of members and petition-signers, in turn embedding those e-mails into the White House distribution list.

"Before people begin blaming the Obama administration, they need to realize that the email indeed may have not been sent from the White House, but a third-party source. According to LIGATT Security International, out of all the fake email addresses people use on services like SPOOFEM.COM and IPSNITCH, whitehouse.gov is the number one used domain," says Evans. "A video demonstration, found on the LIGATT Security website (www.ligatt.com) shows how easy it is to send a fake email from whitehouse.gov."
