Re: No excuse to hack
As much as I like to picture corporations like Starbucks as faceless organizations, ultimately the reaction to the hack is going to come from an actual human being acting in an actual human way.
That human is going to react like this: He walks into his house and finds a stranger sitting in his living room. The stranger says, "look, I've taken nothing, this is how I did it, and now you can make your home safer." The human is going to to have hysterics, threaten the guy with the police and then eat a half gallon if ice cream in one sitting once the guy leaves.
Yeah, maybe the cracker did a Good Thing in the abstract, but geez....
