Passwords on post-it notes, unencrypted Wi-Fi, Windows hanging, laptops breaking and other IT misery

This article in Computerworld is absolutely hilarious.

It describes a spying operation by Russians failing miserably due to various mishaps, such as laptop repair taking two months, Windows hanging, custom software not working, Wi-Fi not working, etc. Not to mention a 27-character top secret password used for communication encryption being written on a piece of paper sitting next to the computer and an unencrypted ad-hoc WiFi network.

Who needs the opposing undercover agents making it even harder?
