Security & Hacking: "Why David Petraeus’s Gmail account is a national security issue"

Patraeus was head of CIA until he resigned over this issue.

Not clear to me, but it sounds like Paula Broadwell, the woman who did his Biography & who he was having affair with, had some type of access to his personal Gmail account.

Evidently one of his Gmail contacts got threatening emails from Broadwell, and contacted the FBI over it, and there was some concern that his GMail account had been hacked.

Could have been as simple as staying logged in to account while he was out of room where computer or phone was, while she was there.

Honestly though, as someone interested in Cyber Security, that is that part I am most curious about, though I also wonder about the motives of all the parties involved.
