D or may be A but then A uses 'still harbored...'.

So, D.

I marked C bacause the doc I have has some type error. Moreover, in D, ENABLE should be ENABLE.

Any thoughts?

Correct version

In a blow to those who still harbored the illusion that E-mail exchanges are private, a watchdog group recently uncovered a trick for enabling an interloper to rig an E-mail message so that this person will be privy to any comments that a recipient had added as the message is forwarded to others or sent back and forth.

(A) who still harbored the illusion that E-mail exchanges are private, a watchdog group recently uncovered a trick for enabling an interloper to rig an E-mail message so that this person will be privy to any comments that a recipient had added
(B) who had still been harboring the illusion that E-mail exchanges are private, a watchdog group recently uncovered a trick for enabling an interloper to rig an E-mail message so that this person was privy to any comments that a recipient might have added
(C) who still were harboring the illusion that E-mail exchanges are private, a watchdog group recently uncovered a trick enabling an interloper to rig an E-mail message so that this person is privy to any comments that a recipient would add
(D) still harboring the illusion that E-mail exchanges are private, a watchdog group recently uncovered a trick that enables an interloper to rig an E-mail message so that this person will be privy to any comments that a recipient might add
(E) still harboring the illusion that E-mail exchanges had been private, a watchdog group recently uncovered a trick that will enable an interloper to rig an E-mail message so that this person was privy to any comments that a recipient might add

Now it is D

C is just too wordy.

I like D the best, but I'm thrown by the verb tense...the original sentence implies that people have stopped being convinced that email was private. D implies they haven't stopped.

the key word is "still"-> has to be -ing, therefore is between D and E. Better D.

I am still confused with question for all the verb tenses that are flying around. Can someone walkthrough their thought process for tacking this question under 60 seconds? I find it hard to keep my head straight and pondering on all the different tense combinations on whether each one is right or not. thank you.

And I just realized we have the winner of the manhattan gmat books here!
