There but for the grace of God...

Flayed surveillance outfit Hacking Team is telling customers to suspend running instances of its software after 400GB of its source code and internal data was stolen and posted online. (The Register)

What happened to the Hacking Team... I understand the Germans even have a word for it. But if this incident tells us anything its that anyone can be hacked, even people in security. Granted, some of their reported (in)security practices were pretty horrible, but we're all using the same software, the same hardware, are exposed to the same risks. Some folks are more hardened against attack than others, less gullible than others, and better and detecting security failures than others. But no one is perfect: this will happen again.
