Hate to be picky but....
'Deputy MP Harriet Harman appeared to political talk shows'
Deputy MP? Is that being hopeful or is it a typo? Perhaps Deputy PM is the sad truth.
Anyhow, this whole unilateral extradition agreement is the problem. From a legal sense I would say that he has to be extradited. But I think that the people involved in agreeing the deal should be investigated for, at the least, gross negligence in signing off such a biased deal.
I cannot believe that anyone with a minimum of security knowledge could give credence to this being the 'biggest hack' ever as the guy was using blank / default passwords, so surely that would go some way to negate the US position (at least in a world where common sense applied).
I know lots of people have said this before, but for me the target's of his attacks should be the ones under scrutiny. I'd hate to have the conversation with my insurance company if I'd left my house and garage door's open all the time and had everything we own nicked....
Also I'd love to know how the cost of the 'damage' was calculated? Changing passwords shouldn't be that hard, should it?
