Lawyers working with Guantanamo Bay detainees had to pause their work after being told to stop using the Pentagon's computer system.  An unspecified issue left over 500,000 emails unsafe to access or deleted from a Pentagon common drive. The breach left defense files unsecured and it may have been possible for prosecutors to view confidential defense emails.
