The hacktivist group that breached the personal email account of CIA Director John Brennan isn’t done yet.

It turned out the problem was a ghost in the machine.
His company, Possible Mobile, is well versed in the App Store submission rules and has built apps for JetBlue, Better Homes & Gardens and the Major Soccer League.
