    Damn, I *knew* I should have recalibrated the Tardis. What month is this? Am I too late? Has the invasion started?

    That's what you get when you're so used to writing about things that are *about* to happen that "early" and "month" automatically trigger the word "next" rather than "last" in your fingers. Fixed, ta!

    It always amazes me that the companies with the worst security tend to be tech companies. It's embarassing!

    Will the ICO see this as serious enough to impose the maximum fine of £500,000 or maybe the people responsible will face a custodial sentences.

    Now Adobe are pushing Creative Cloud for all their software there's now a single point of failure for hacking. Fortunately for me I decided CC wasn't worth the expenditure so the only login details adobe has for me were just used for Kuler.

    I wonder how hard it is for a big rich tech company to perform a security audit and apply fixes before something like this happens? Hopefully somone gets the sack over this

    I've heard they've handed the security side over to a more competent company for the future.........Group 4.
