Surprise: attempted attack on Hilary's email account

Big news this morning: according to the Associated Press, presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton's private email server was the target of a hack.

The Associated Press got a hold of several emails showing how the hackers attempted to get into her system. Apparently the attackers sent an email disguised as a request for payment for speeding tickets with attachments. Downloading the attachments would have allowed the attacker to have control over her machine. No news outlet has mentioned whether or not she clicked through.

I don't think anyone is surprised about the attack. The question then becomes: this particular incident was discovered, how many others were not? And, what secrets within the former Secretary of State's email have been accessed by unauthorized third parties and what is the potential fallout?

We need more facts ma'am.
