Comment Bah! Media! (Score 5, Insightful) 173 173

So, what exactly do they mean by "breach". Someone got into some systems? Once there, did they take copies of data? That's a lot of data. Why didn't anyone see the mass exodus of gigabytes? The weasel worded breathless media reports are just dripping with a lack of specificity and reek of "omg phear the evil hackerz!" - they feel more designed to generate fear than inform. I view the whole thing with a jaundiced, skeptical eye.

Just because Captialism 101 says that all actors in an economy will act responsibly (yes I know the wording is assume but for all intensive purposes it may as well demand it, people assume that their own irresponsible actions are insignificant), does not make it so.

For all intents and purposes, Habeeb speaks better english than you.
