Submission + - Stephen Fry Security Whoopsie Leads to Prank (theregister.co.uk)

An anonymous reader writes: Hoppity-skippety technology commentator of all our hearts Stephen Fry has made a regrettable security blunder. After filming in Oxford at the famous Bodleian Library yesterday, the enthusiastic luvvie was granted a reader's card – a rare privilege, as normally access to the archives is granted only to members of Oxford University (Fry went to Cambridge himself). "I'm now a reader! *faints at the honour and glory of it all* Thanks @BodleianLibs" tweeted the excited thespian. He even went so far as to post a photo of his new library card on his website to prove it. Unfortunately, according to our informants, Fry neglected to change his password from the default setting.
