They are resposible - if they have been deemed to be in breach of PCI compliance, they will not be granted "safe harbour" by their issuing bank / {AMEX, Visa, MC}. In a nutshell it means that they will find it more expensive to do business from now on. It does often happen however that a business will decide that being PCI compliant is more expensive than the fines...

yes, petty poor in terms of insight. also a bit US centric really. I'm pretty sure Nokia released a product before 2006, and that they've been more than just an entry level phone manufacturer before and since (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nokia_products). Of course this was before they seemed to stop bothering, or got stuck chasing apples tail depending on your point of view. IMO windows has never released a noteworthy phone either.

yes, but that's still not great is it? esp when it could be safer by design. It doesn't seem as if it would take a more-easy-to-spot DOS attack either - just a lightweight process occasionally spamming these bad URIs to Server 2008 and win7 boxes on the network.
