This is a low blow from the establishment. Granted, Gottfrid comes off as a deranged, drug-addled terrorist occasionally, but he is at least partially responsible for the underpinnings of a true technological and cultural revolution. I am a security professional and as pissed as I get when some random asshole or DDOS (or me) brings down a datacenter of mine, I'm more upset with myself and my team for allowing that unsafe condition to exist in the first place. We have to be right all the time and they have to be right once. This is not a new concept. These companies and especially government organizations should be expected to assume the same level of due diligence, if not FAR more, than everyone else. They just had the sensitive data just sitting there to take. I'm not an anarchist and I believe completely in personal responsibility but there should be some comparative negligence that comes into play here. Yeah, sure, Gottfrid allegedly did it, but Logica and Nordea failed in protecting their customers' sensitive interests.
