Another Network Breach: This Time Fox

While I don't think this is a targeted attack against the News Corp empire, it's the second time in less than a month that its network was hacked and employee information stolen.  Seriously, in this day and age?!

Are you kidding me?  We entrust our information to business entities with deep pocket to create networks and, at the very least, make sure they do everything they can to safeguard them. Now, I know there is no such thing as a foolproof network and, yet, this is not happen to everyone but to some.  

If anything, I think this is an issue of human error that should have caught the security hole that allowed hackers to infiltrate them and steal information.  

There is a twist to this.  The hackers in this incident did have some grudge against Fox.  Well, then again, aside from The X-Files, The Siimpsons, and still on the air Fringe, Fox really doesn't have a lot to offer and Foxnews alone is enough to piss off a lot of people. 

More at The Inquirer.

Note:  Frankly, I think Foxnews is wonderful. They are fun to watch and I catch it here and there when there really is nothing to watch on TV.  Don't get me wrong.  As far as I'm concerned, they don't do news but they are the complete opposite of The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.  They try to be a serious news network that makes shit up.  And they do it night after night.  Folks, that takes talent.
