What Were They Thinking?
From Business Insider comes an article that makes my mind reel:
The US Agency Plundered By Chinese Hackers Made One Of The Dumbest Security Moves Possible
"Contractors in Argentina and China were given "direct access to every row of data in every database" when they were hired by the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to manage the personnel records of more than 14 million federal employees, a federal consultant told ArsTechnica."
A simple head-slap moment or insidiousness on a scale which we've never before seen?
My choice isn't the V-8 moment one.
