In one hand and out the other or more to the point “More than 8,300 bank account login credentials were stolen from a small New York bank”

8,300 Online Banking Logins Stolen |Security News | Outpost24

“More than 8,300 bank account login credentials were stolen from a small New York bank after hackers breached its security and gained access to a server hosting its online banking system.”
According to a press release issued by Suffolk County National Bank, “they hacked us but we were on it straight away and none of our customers lost any money, at all, what so ever, honestly”,
nah, but that’s my interpretation of it 🙂
But it gets better, in fact this bit is brill’ (as they say “oop north”)
“Adding, “Investors and shareholders should be advised that a provision of approximately $351,000, net of taxes, or about $0.04 per share, was booked during the fourth quarter of 2009 to account for expenses which may or may not be incurred in responding to this incident.”
My underlining by the way but it was pure pythonesque

BBC News then France in fresh explorer warning then then, well I don’t know… i’ve just searched through my history and can’t make the connection now. I did a search for the initials CPNI or “Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure” but I can’t for the life of me work out which article had sent me there, , hey, ho, as my mate “Mister” would say.
Anyway CPNI is the “Government authority that provides protective security advice to businesses and organisations across the national infrastructure.” according to Google, so I was wondering whether they would talk about “Operating System” security, particularly where Linux might be involved, i’m actually still on the site at the mo’ but felt compelled to share it with you straight away. Anything else of note and i’ll add it here but if you have anything to add, feel free as usual.
