In information security, if you get caught you did not do a good job.

Good read!

OVER? did you say "Over"? Nothing is over until we decide its over, was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell No!!!

Whoever wrote that article put it together in 10 minutes without doing any researching or fact checking. At least some of his examples are completely blown out of proportion.

Like the MBA 'hack'. This was a simple URL change. Basically, some people started to get notifications of whether they got accepted and were send to a url like this: http://whatever.com/username/decision.html So the 'hacker', decided to check the same url for himself - only changing the username - to see if anything shows up, and it turns out that the information was in fact out there. Once it was posted on the forum, a few 100 people decided to check the URL for themselves. That's it... At least some schools decided to reject all people who were actually accepted but checked the URL to check their status. If this counts like the biggest hacking story then it's pretty lame.
