Anytime I talk about the work of other journalists, I wake for myself a
world of pain ... however.
1. An attack on a not-yet-live system does not imply that the live
system is subject to the same attacks.
2. An old attack doesn't imply that the system is still vulnerable to
the same attack.
3. "During development" means BEFORE there were any real customer
records to be compromised.
In other words, without any evidence that the vulnerability still
exists, this is unadulterated beat-up.
BTW. I cannot make these comments on Delimiter because I am a competing
journalist. So I am constrained to making remarks like this on other
forums. Oh well...
