Another Travesty That Could Have Been Avoided
The break-in occurred over the weekend and was discovered within hours, after which the online store was shut down, AT&T said. The telecommunications company quickly notified credit card companies and is in the process of contacting the affected customers via e-mail, phone and letter, it said.
I dont know if hours means 2 or 40 but from my perspective it is irrelavant. The bottom line from my perspective is that this activity is ENTIRELY preventable and I can prevent it from happening. How you ask?
Because if you do not have an identity that is known to me and valid (as a company) AND you don't have a machine that I know and trust - you don't get access to my networks, servers, or applications. Period.
No identity (user or machine), no entry.
Pick on someone else.
