Remind me ...
what does PoS also stand for ?
Point of sales vendor Lightspeed has been breached with password, customer data, and API keys possibly exposed. Lightspeed has notified customers in an email saying that the information was contained in a compromised database but was not confirmed to be stolen. It boasts more than 38,000 customers transacting $12bn annually …
"However, there is no indication that any specific data, including any personal information, has been taken or used"
Time after time companies are forced to admit intrusions, and then try to pass it off by making out that perhaps those who hacked into the database then would decide not to copy any of the information from it.
Every time a communications or marketing person issues such a statement they should be slapped with a wet fish and made to paint their usernames, passwords and banking details on the front of their houses. If they are so sure these things are not likely to be used.
I wonder if future generations will look back on this era of clusterfucks and wonder to themselves, "if only they had learnt to code properly"
Looking at you Adobe!
How long until laws are drawn up to lock these muppets up for good?
Can we name ANY software house out there in the World, which hasn't sneezed at a screen and called it software?
